ARCADIA, WI--(Marketwire -06/28/12)- Ashley Furniture HomeStore's A Hope to Dream program delivers hundreds more mattresses this month, bringing the number of new beds donated to less-fortunate kids to nearly 3,000.
"We're so proud to be part of a program that's making healthy sleep a reality for thousands of underprivileged children across the country -- and we're proud of everyone who's helped make it a reality," says John Disa, President, Ashley HomeStores, Ltd. "We now have over 200 Ashley Furniture HomeStores participating in A Hope to Dream, not to mention dedicated partners and community members who continue to make a difference in the lives of many children. Without their help and passion, the program wouldn't be where it is today. It truly is a group effort."
Since the program began in 2010, participating Ashley Furniture HomeStore locations have made a $5 donation to A Hope to Dream for every mattress purchased in their stores. The company's goal is to have four-thousand new beds in the homes of underprivileged kids by the end of the year.
"This time around, we're hoping to get even more new beds into children's homes by donating a new mattress set every time a customer purchases a Special Edition Ashley Sleep 16" Memory Foam mattress from a participating store," says Disa. "Children are a vital part of any growing community, and we wanted to find a way to help them live healthier and more productive lives. We know that a good night's sleep has a positive impact on all areas of a child's life, from academics and extracurricular activities to relationships with friends and family."
Those wishing to nominate a child to receive an Ashley Sleep Memory Foam mattress set and comforter set can visit www.AHopetoDream.com. In-store applications are also being accepted at participating Ashley Furniture HomeStore locations. Winning nominations are chosen based on originality, need and expression of thought.
