Andy Arnold takes old, beautiful wooden chairs and re-purposes them into works of art that inspire, encourage and celebrate something or someone perfectly.. He has recently undertaken a special project to benefit our cause and the disabled veterans we serve. This special chair has been named the “Sacrifice Chair.”

From the Andy’s Chairs website:
“Meet Andy!!!! Andy was born with Down Syndrome and other health issues that kept him in and out of hospitals for many years. However, his parents strongly believe that Jesus still heals today, so they chose to raise Andy without limits, believing that his life has purpose and trusting that he would fulfill everything God had for his life.
Raised with three other siblings in a family that treats him like an equal in all ways, Andy’s unique characteristics and talents have flourished. He has been continually challenged to discover and fulfill the God-given desires of his heart. His charisma, unfailing joy and unbiased friendliness makes him a favorite wherever he goes. By the time he graduated from High School in 2016, Andy had made friends with the entire school – students, faculty and service staff alike.
When anyone asked Andy what he was going to do after High School, he would immediately respond “Own my own business!” He underlined that desire by always wearing a dress shirt and tie, even to school, because he KNEW one day God would give him his own business.
Andy has been surrounded with creativity his whole life – his father does home construction and wood-working and his mother is an artist On a quiet day soon after high school graduation, his mom handed him a paintbrush and a pint-sized rocking chair – and the seed was planted.
With training and guidance from his parents and the encouragement of many friends and community members, Andy is learning refinishing skills as well as developing a passion for each chair, naming them as he is inspired, and praying that the message behind each chair encourages and inspires each owner.”
