Mattress Firm supports foster kids (and attracts customers) by conducting year-round, in-store donation drives, collecting: shoes, money, clothing, pajamas, school supplies and holiday gifts.
Narrator: “For thousands of local foster children, a pair of new shoes is a small but important gift.”
Foster Kids: “My shoes have a hole in them. I can barely fit in these anymore. I hope no one will notice. They hurt my feet. I never had new shoes before.”
Narrator: “To help, Mattress Firm is collecting new shoes of all sizes. Bring your gift to any Mattress Firm and they will be given to a local foster child in need.”
Foster Kids: “Not everyone can be a foster parent, but anyone can be a foster child”.
