CHARLOTTE, N.C. –  There are roughly 442,000 children in foster care nationwide, about 11,000 in North Carolina.  That is a 10 year high.  To help these children Mattress Firm store are hosting their first Bedtime Book Drive.  Now through Sunday, July 28th all Charlotte Mattress Firm locations  will accept new bedtime books and monetary contributions to give foster kids the joy of a bedtime read.  All proceeds stay local and will be donated to Children’s Hope Alliance and Children’s Home Society of North Carolina at the end of the drive.

Mattress Firm Foster Kids, a program of The Ticket to Dream Foundation, hosts three donation drives per year to collect essential sleep items and raise funds to help thousands of local foster children get the quality night sleep they deserve. Donations from each drive are distributed to local nonprofit partner organizations.
