Annual Coat Drive Garners 29% Increase in Donations, Providing Thousands of Foster Kids with Winter Coats; Toy Drive Begins to Help Every Foster Child Get a Visit From Santa
Sleep Country USA, the Northwest’s largest seller of premium mattresses, announced that its annual Sleep Country Foster Kids Coat Drive brought in nearly 30% more donations than last year – giving an additional 300 foster children new coats.
Sleep Country USA celebrates this success while kicking off its annual Secret Santa Toy Drive, which began on November 19th, and runs through December 16th. The company is asking for donations of new, unwrapped toys and gifts to help the area’s 26,000 foster children have a more enjoyable holiday season. Lists for Santa include: Art Kits, Books, Lego’s, Dolls, Dress-Up Kits, Board Games, and Personal Care Kits (bath sets).
“We are thrilled at the tremendous response we’ve received from our community – individuals and businesses alike – to help local foster children stay warm this winter,” said Terry Horsley, Vice President of Brand Strategy, Sleep Country USA. “As we close the year with two very important drives, we strive to continue to increase our impact, especially during the holidays, which is often a difficult time for children to be without their family. It’s easy to share the joy of the season by purchasing a few extra gifts for those that may otherwise go without.”
Consumers can donate at any of the company’s more than 70 stores throughout Washington and Oregon. For more information go to www.sleepcountry.com.
