MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Food and Futons don't usually work together, but this past week they have.
The Futon Factory in Mishawaka is collecting canned goods for a food pantry in Elkhart.
They've raised nearly a hundred dollars and at least five boxes of food!
The owners want to show that local businesses can give back to the community and help each other out!
"I feel like any time you can keep things local and do something locally for somebody else, that builds the community and makes people more confident." said owner Reed Burrer.
They say the response from the community has been overwhelming.
