    Mattress Firm Foster Kids Shoe Drive

    10:00 am-8:00 pm

    All 16 Mattress Firm stores in Charleston are hosting a shoe drive to benefit local foster youth and families. Now through Tuesday, Oct. 31, during normal store hours, Mattress Firm will accept new shoes and monetary contributions to help local foster children walk with confidence. At the end of the nine-week drive, all proceeds will be donated to Growing Home Southeast, Helping & Lending Outreach Support and the South Carolina Youth Advocate Program.

    Throughout the year, Mattress Firm Foster Kids, a program of the Ticket to Dream Foundation, hosts six donation drives at its Charleston-area stores to collect items and raise funds to help thousands of local foster children. Donations from each drive are distributed to partner organizations in the community.
