Fostering a better community

Simone BilesTop 100 retailer Mattress Firm does a lot of work in its communities to help foster kids. This month, it is collecting shoes as part of its Mattress Firm Foster Kids Shoe Drive, and it's teaming up with record-setting U.S. Olympic gymnast Simone Biles.

Through Oct. 30, during normal store hours all across the country, Mattress Firm will accept new shoes and monetary contributions to help local foster children walk with confidence. In Greensboro, N.C., it announced that all proceeds will be donated to Children’s Hope Alliance and Thompson Child and Family Focus at the end of the drive, which lasts for seven weeks.
