The Best Way to Spread Holiday Cheer is Giving Back to Foster Children This Year!

Imagine being a child and told you’re being taken away from those you love the most. You’re given a trash bag and told to pack as many of your belongings as you can. For whatever reason, and through no fault of your own, you are now being taken to a completely new place, without many of the comforts you are used to. And now more than ever, you're uncertain of what your future holds.

Beyond the unease and uncertainty that many children feel while in foster care, the holidays can be a particularly difficult time for foster youth. That's why Mattress Firm is passionate about working with our local communities to make the holiday season a little brighter for these kiddos.

This holiday season Mattress Firm Elves were able to give big and give back to children in foster care through our partnership with the Ticket to Dream Foundation.

For the fourth year in a row, Mattress Firm Elves across the country volunteered their time to hand-deliver toys collected during the Mattress Firm Bears and Bedtime Toys Drive to children in foster care in our local communities.

In partnership with local nonprofit partners, our Mattress Firm Elves in Denver and Houston delivered toys to children in foster care during the month of December. Each event was a huge success and we hope to have spread a little extra joy this holiday season!
