Local Mattress Firm Stores to Host Clothing Drive for Foster Kids
WHAT: All 12 Mattress Firm stores in the Central Texas area are hosting a Clothing Drive to benefit local foster youth and families. Through Sunday, June 18, 2017 during normal store hours, Mattress Firm will accept new articles of clothing and monetary contributions to give foster kids properly fitting clothes to call their own. While all clothing items infant to adult sizes are needed, the most request items are jeans, graphic tees, hoodies, athletic wear and any item that will make a foster child or teen feel special. All proceeds will be donated to Arrow Child & Family Ministries, DePelchin Children’s Center, Foster Angels of Central Texas and Helping Hand Home for Children at the end of the eight-week drive.
Throughout the year, Mattress Firm Foster Kids, a program of the Ticket to Dream Foundation, hosts six donation drives at its Central Texas stores to collect items and raise funds to help thousands of local foster children. Donations from each drive will be distributed to partner organizations in the community.
WHEN: Now through Sunday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
