Sedona AZ (November 6, 2014) – During this season of giving AZADI Fine Rugs is proud to support the Sedona Community Food Bank by donating 10% of their proceeds November 14-16.

“We are honored to take our place with individuals that are supporting families in the Verde Valley during this season of giving,” says AZADI Fine Rugs owner David Neishabori “Our hope is that we can help insure that no one goes hungry during this holiday season.”
AZADI Fine Rugs is committed both locally and globally to support communities that they see as their extended family. They believe that part of building a business is building a legacy of giving. Locally, they have worked with numerous non-profits helping them to raise much-needed funds. Organizations they have worked with include The Sedona Film Festival, The Sedona Miracle, and the Sedona School system.
