AFFF has pledged $16,000 to furnish eight apartments at Poynter Preserves in Pinellas County, Florida, which are reserved specifically for low-income or homeless veterans and their families. Each apartment will be outfitted with an array of needed furnishings for bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms.
