Local Ashley Furniture stores donate mattress sets to those in need

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Ashley Furniture Home Goodsin Savannah and Bluffton delivered gifts not likely to fit under the tree, but still greatly needed as part of their 'A Hope To Dream' program.

On Saturday, the stores delivered 17 mattress sets to less fortunate children in both Savannah and Bluffton.

The program, which strives to provide children with a comfortable place to sleep, began in 2010. 

Ashley Furniture donates $5 of each mattress sold to provide for the program.

"I got to call these people up and say 'Hey, you got a free mattress,'" said regional manager Glen Tourout.

"Some families got two free mattresses, and these people are crying on the telephone, just very touching. Especially this time of year, it couldn't come at a better time."

In total, Ashley Furniture delivered about $35,000 worth of mattress sets to children in our area.
