LANSING, Mich. — Ashley HomeStore knows that local area Fire Fighters are every day heroes in our community and wants to give back to them. Knowing how tight local budgets can be Ashley HomeStore teamed up with Bedgear to Donate 100 Mattress/Boxframes along with over 100 Mattress protectors for Lansing and Flint local area Fire Fighters.

“They’ve got our backs, so it’s time for us to get theirs” said Max Awad, General Manager of Michigan operations. “These every day heroes serve our community and often have to sleep on mattresses that are well past their prime. We all know how important sleep is, and I want the fire fighter that shows up to my house in my time of need to be well rested!”

We will be starting the deliveries in Lansing at:

WHERE: Lansing Fire Department –120 East Shiawassee St. Lansing, MI 48933

WHEN: 11:00 a.m. Thursday, Oct 17, 2019

Additional deliveries will be made throughout the day with 6 total stations having Mattresses replaced.

UPDATE: Ashley Homestore Lansing is proud to include Granger Waste Services in this amazing community outreach! Granger has agreed to provide disposal of all the old mattresses

Granger Waste Services is a family owned company who has happily been involved in the communities we serve since 1966.

Following the Golden Rule of “Treating others as you wish to be treated” made partnering with Ashley Home Furnishings an easy choice.
