Family of five receives much-needed furniture donation

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Two Las Vegas families will really feel at home this holiday. Walker Furniture started out their 19th annual 'Home for the Holidays' program on Friday, delivering much-needed furniture just in time for Christmas.

Daryl and Michele Porter stood in amazement at a house full of beds, couches and tables. Up until Friday, they lived in a three-bedroom apartment with five children and no furniture.

"I sleep on a cot," said one of their daughters.

The family sat on the floor to eat.

A submission sent to Walker Furniture describeds Daryl as a hard-working man who works a job he hates to provide for his five children.

All of the family's furniture was ruined by an infestation at their old apartment, and they haven't been able to afford new things.

Walker Furniture filled their home with everything from a master bedroom set to a dining room table, and beds for the children.
