In honor of National Foster Care Month, Mattress Firm launched the #MoreThanAMattress campaign to raise awareness about the important role a mattress plays, not only for sleeping, but in the development and formation of childhood memories.
On Wednesday, May 15, Mattress Firm volunteers in Philadelphia, San Antonio and Seattle surprised deserving foster parents with new mattresses for their families, so they can continue to positively impact the lives of foster children. Here are a few pictures of the mattress deliveries:
Thanks to our Mattress Firm team, all mattress deliveries were an absolute success, and even better, these incredible families can continue to give foster children the love and care they so deserve.
Through Mattress Firm Foster Kids, a program of the Ticket to Dream Foundation, we hope to make sure every foster child can find comfort in sleep. Follow along here to see what else Mattress Firm Foster Kids is up to throughout the year, or find out how you can help a foster kid in your area by visiting mattressfirmfosterkids.org.

Tammy Dudek They say life is like a boomerang and what you give is what you get. Tammy Dudek couldn’t agree more with that sentiment, and in fact, it’s one of the reasons she was drawn to a career at Mattress Firm. After spending several years working for a non-profit, Tammy wasn’t sure if a sales job was the right choice for her, but she took a leap of faith and joined Mattress Firm in 2011. From that day forward, her passion for the company grew daily. As the communications manager, Tammy gets to work with the Mattress Firm Foster Kids program and help connect associates to opportunities for giving back to their local community. At the same time, she has the privilege of sharing those stories of service and growing a passionate culture across the entire company. When she’s not helping people fall in love with Mattress Firm, Tammy stays busy by volunteering in the Houston community. Despite a busy schedule, there is one thing Tammy will always make time for and that’s curling up in her bed, sitting up with her adjustable base, and enjoying a Netflix binge with her husband, Zac.
