Another wonderful retailer is making a generous donation to military families worth $1 million! AshleySleep is donating 1300 mattresses through Operation Homefront in select US cities.
Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. has shown military appreciation in the past through the Soldiers Walk/Avenue of Heroes. A major memorial to American fought conflicts.
“Todd Wanek, President and CEO of Ashley Furniture Industries. "We are excited to provide these mattresses as a way to partner with Operation Homefront to show our appreciation and provide assistance to our hard working troops and their families. Our military's unceasing vigilance allows us to sleep well each night, and, in return, the least we can do is help them to get a good nights' sleep."
According to the Operation Homefront Facebook page, San Antonio mattresses are set for distribution from 5-6 January 2012 to those in the ranks of E-1 to E-6. *Please refer to their page for details*.
Other cities are Gaithersburg, Maryland and Oceanside, California.
I’m not getting a mattress but I will take the time to thank Ashley Furniture and Operation Homefront for this wonderful gesture.
