FARMINGTON — American Home Furniture & Mattress in Farmington has donated 5 percent of its sales over two recent weekends to area food banks.

The proceeds have raised enough money to provide more than 150,000 meals, according to a press release from the company.

Donations will be made to the Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque, the Food Depot in Santa Fe, ECHO Food Bank in Farmington and the Durango Food Bank in Durango, Colo.

This marked the third time the business has offered the promotion.

"We have been fortunate to have been a member of the local community for over 80 years and believe that it is extremely important for us to give back to the community in any way that we can," said American Home CEO and owner Kenton Van Harten in a prepared statement
