An Official Kick off to Camp Season with Hope to Dream
by Ashley HomeStore
On Friday, June 28, we partnered with Variety’s Camp Brereton by hosting Hope to Dream Camp Day! As an official kick off to camp season, we donated 103 twin mattresses and mattress protectors to Variety’s Camp Brereton through our Hope to Dream program.
Founded in 2010, every mattress sold at Ashley HomeStore contributes to Hope to Dream. This program seeks to provide deserving children in the community with a clean and comfortable mattress set. For the past eight years, over 80,000 children in North America have benefited from this initiative!
“By the end of each jam packed day, campers will benefit from restoring their mind and bodies with quality sleep,” said Kraig Hickel, Vice President, Ashley Homestore. “We’re honoured to have the opportunity to lend our support to Variety’s Camp Brereton, providing the best possible sleep to campers for years to come.”
Variety’s Camp Brereton is located approximately two hours northeast of Winnipeg, set in the beautiful backcountry of Whiteshell Provincial Park. Striving to be the premier accessible wilderness camp for children of all abilities, Variety’s Camp Brereton allows campers to “just be kids” in a nurturing and encouraging environment!
To pair perfectly with the new mattresses, we also left a special surprise! Teddy bears and Ashley HomeStore swag were set up on the new mattresses for each camper. Theres nothing better than a brand new teddy bear just waiting to be loved and cherished!
