WHL partners with Ashley HomeStore for Hope to Dream Program
CALGARY, AB – Ashley HomeStore and the Western Hockey League have teamed up to provide mattress sets in nine markets across the WHL throughout the 2016-17 season. Founded in 2010 by Ashley HomeStore, ‘Hope to Dream’ seeks to provide less fortunate children with a mattress set that is essential to a good night’s sleep.
Ashley HomeStore, in partnership with the Brandon Wheat Kings, Calgary Hitmen, Edmonton Oil Kings, Lethbridge Hurricanes, Medicine Hat Tigers, Red Deer Rebels, Regina Pats, Saskatoon Blades and the Swift Current Broncos have donated 36 mattress sets to kids in need this season. Ashley HomeStore believes by helping a child sleep well, they are poised to lead a healthier and more productive life.
“The WHL is very excited to have entered into a new partnership with Ashley HomeStore, which will allow us to donate mattress sets through the Hope to Dream Program to less fortunate children and families,” commented WHL Commissioner Ron Robison. “Through our partnership with Ashley HomeStore we look forward to enriching the lives of many families for years to come.”
“Over the last year between our WHL partnership and other initiatives we have given over 140 kids a better night’s sleep with our Hope to Dream mattress donations,” said Terry Cowan, Director, Marketing for Ashley HomeStore. “We are thrilled with our partnership and look forward to expanding our Hope to Dream program in each of these WHL communities.”
A portion of every mattress sold in Ashley HomeStore locations is donated to the Hope to Dream program in local communities. If you know a child in need of a mattress, visit www.ashleyfurniturehomestore.com/a-hope-to-dream to fill out a request form.
