Houston Flood Relief for Our Home Town
The following post is a message from Mattress Firm CEO Steve Stagner:
As we approach our 29th anniversary here at Mattress Firm, we are overwhelmed with gratitude for the support we’ve received from our hometown over the years. Not only do more than 600 Mattress Firm team members call Houston home, but our company headquarters have resided here since 1986, creating a deep bond with the community that watched us grow into the national brand we are today. Last month, Houston experienced severe spring weather, causing some parts of the city to flood. I watched the news in horror and sadness as neighborhoods in the city where I grew up were devastated by the deluge of rain. I knew immediately that we as a company had to step up and help our family, friends, neighbors and colleagues keep their spirits up as our city begins the process of rebuilding. Through the Mattress Firm Flood Relief Program, we can give people affected by the flooding a good night’s sleep. In addition to a $50,000 donation Mattress Firm made to the Red Cross of Central Texas, we are extending a special $700 store credit (one per household) to the people in our hometown who were impacted by the flood so they don’t have to go another night without rest.
We are hosting an event this weekend (Saturday, June 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) to help those in our community who are still recovering from the storm. Houston residents are invited to stop by the Mattress Firm located at 398 Meyerland Plaza Mall to claim a $700 credit toward a mattress when they present proof of damage through their Red Cross case number or FEMA case number. There will also be breakfast and snacks provided by Whataburger, a live DJ and pillow giveaways throughout the day. If you are unable to make it to the event in person, but have access to a computer or mobile device, you can obtain your $700 credit online by filling out this simple form before August 31, 2015. Once you’ve received your credit, you will have until December 31, 2015 to redeem your $700 credit, which can be applied toward any mattress or bedding purchase in-store.
We have been blessed these past 29 years to live, work and play in Houston, and we want to give back to the community that gave us our start, extending the same support to Houston families in need that we offer our own Mattress Firm family. As Houston works to rebuild and restore what’s been lost, Mattress Firm will be here to assist in the recovery process. We are confident that together, we can help hour hometown come back stronger than ever.
Wishing all of our Houston families a quick recovery and a good night’s sleep.
CEO, Mattress Firm
