Minneapolis Mattress Firm Stores to Host School Supply Drive for Foster Kids

Date/Time

Jul 9, 2018 to Sep 2, 2018
10:00 AM until 08:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

Now through September 2, all Mattress Firm stores in Minneapolis will be accepting school supplies to provide to local foster children and teens with the tools they need to succeed. All donations collected during the Mattress Firm Foster Kids School Supply Drive will stay in the Minneapolis community and will be distributed through local nonprofit partners, Family Alternatives at the end of the nine-week drive.The thrill of getting new school supplies can be exciting for children going back to school, but for those in foster care this can be an expensive and difficult burden. These difficulties can result in foster children getting behind in school and less likely to graduate high school. As the new school year approaches, a donation of back-to-school supplies can help uplift foster children and give them the confidence and materials they need to learn and be successful. Most requested items are backpacks, notebooks, binders, folders, pens/pencils and any item that will make a foster child or teen feel prepared for the new school year. Drop off your donations of new school supplies for all ages at any Minneapolis Mattress Firm store.
