Mattress Firm has launched Mattress Firm Foster Kids, a company-wide philanthropic initiative aimed at making a positive impact on the lives of thousands of foster youth in need.
All 105 stores in the Phoenix area are hosting a clothing drive through June 26 to collect shoes, clothing, pajamas and school supplies, as well as toys and funds that support extra-curricular activities.
Mattress Firm will accept clothing and monetary contributions, which will be donated to Arizona Children’s Association and Arizona Helping Hands at the end of the eight-week drive.
“Our national presence can help improve the lives of foster children, and we’re doing everything in our power to rally our teams and the communities that we serve to provide these children with everyday necessities,” said Ken Murphy, president and CEO of Mattress Firm.
Donations also can be made online at www.mattressfirmfosterkids.org, and all gifts will be used by Mattress Firm Foster Kids’ carefully selected foster care partners to provide foster children with special programs and services.
