NORFOLK, Va., Nov. 25, 2013—Leading furniture retailers Ashley Furniture HomeStore, Southeastern Virginia, and Grand Furniture have teamed up with Paramount Sleep to donate 100 new twin mattress sets to less fortunate children in the Hampton Roads, Virginia, area this holiday season. Between December 1 and 25 four children ages 3 to 16 will be selected each day to receive a new mattress set.
Applications are being accepted online at www.AChanceToDreamGrand.com or www.AHopeToDream.com and at any Grand Furniture or Ashley Furniture HomeStore, SEVA location. A Chance to DREAM GRAND is modeled on Ashley Furniture HomeStore’s A Hope to Dream national charitable program, which partners locally with the Children’s Health Investment Program (CHIP) of South Hampton Roads. Grand Furniture has selected ForKids, a Norfolk-based charity dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty for families and children, to support its new program.
“This is just the beginning of our initiative, A Chance to DREAM GRAND,” says Brett Johnson, Director of Strategic Planning for both Grand Furniture and Ashley Furniture HomeStore, SEVA. “By leveraging our unique market position, not only can we positively impact more children in need this holiday season, but our entire organization feels that this provides us the most successful way to launch our 2014 program.”
“We are thrilled to provide Back Performance mattress sets to local children in need,” said Paramount Sleep Director of National Accounts Tom Burke. “Proper exercise, nutrition and a great night’s sleep are critical to a child’s development.”
Several local media outlets also have provided advertising and promotion for the charitable program.
