Local Ashley HomeStore seeks nominations for kids in need
Nominations are now open for this year’s Hope to Dream campaign.
This marks the seventh year that the Cranbrook Ashley HomeStore has donated mattresses to kids in need in our community. The Hope to Dream program seeks to provide less fortunate local children with comfortable mattresses for a good night’s sleep.
A portion from every mattress sold at the Ashley HomeStore in Cranbrook has gone towards a full sleep package, which consists of a twin memory foam mattress set with sheets and comforter set valued at $750.
“We are excited to continue this program,” said owner Joey Hoechsmann. “Our family is proud to have donated 66 mattress sets thus far totalling $50,000.”
This year with COVID-19 the need is even greater, and the team and Ashley has made it even easier to nominate someone. The application form is on the website, ashleyhomestorecranbrook.com. You can also stop by the store and pick up a form.
“We’re so proud to be part of a program that’s making healthy sleep a reality for thousands of underprivileged children across North America, and we’re proud of everyone who’s helped make it a reality,” said Hoechsmann. “There are over 500 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 would not be where it is today. It truly is a group effort.”
If you know of a child in need, please take a moment and fill out an application before Dec 20. Your nomination can make a difference in a child’s health and wellbeing.
