The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs were selected as the lucky recipients of the Ashley HomeStore's Okanagan - Hope to Dream program. The Hope is that every child around the world has a clean, unused mattress set to call their own. And The Dream is that a portion of every Ashley HomeStore mattress set purchase goes to Hope to Dream, a program designed to provide a free twin mattress, box spring, bed frame and bedding to deserving children.
The benefits of sleep are known to increase the attention span for better academic performance, enhance creativity and boosts immune systems to fight off sickness. Teaming up with Ashley Furniture helps us ensure children have a great future ahead of them. As parents caregivers and club staff work to prepare children for a good night sleep through exercise and nutrition, Ashley HomeStore is able to provide appropriate bed linens and clean, comfortable mattresses. Working together to achieve the Hope to Dream!
Thanks to the Hope to Dream Program and Ashley HomeStores’ in the Okanagan enough funds were raised to provide 35 beds to children in need. As the selected recipients our Clubs teamed up with Mamas for Mamas to included deserving families to receive the Hope to Dream.
On September 28th the children and their families were treated to a special event including a meal donated by McDonald's, the reveal of their beds and a movie on a giant screen sitting on a giant couch. Along with all of that each child went home with a backpack of school supplies donated by Staples.
Thank you to Ashley HomeStore for giving our kids "Hope to Dream".
