WHAT: All 77 Mattress Firm stores in Orlando are hosting a School Supply Drive to benefit local foster youth and families. Through Sunday, August 27 during normal store hours, Mattress Firm will accept school supplies and monetary contributions to help give local foster children the tools they need to succeed as a new school year begins. All items collected will be donated to the Children’s Home Society of Florida and Florida Baptist Children’s Homes 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 Orlando-area 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.
