Twin Beds Donated to a Family In Need

On December 12, 2013 the Lopez Family was awoken by their smoke alarm. Realizing they were being surrounded by smoke, mother Michelle, grabbed her two children, Aaliyah age 11 and Isaac age 6 to get them out of the house safely.

Firefighters stated that if they had slept for just two minutes longer the smoke in their house would have caused serious damage to the family.

With no time to waste, the Lopez family immediately started looking for a new home. After staying in a hotel for 3 days, they found a new place and were eager to make it their own. Friends and family began to donate furniture and other necessities to the family, but mother Michelle states that even though she was grateful for the assistance, it was so frustrating that she worked so hard for all of her stuff just for it to be gone in one night.

The children were given hand-me-down beds from their cousins. Aaliyah describes her bed as constantly squeaking at night and even poking her back.

Ashley Furniture Homestore’s A Hope To Dream was designed for reasons such as this- to give new beds to children in need. After hearing their story, we donated two complete twin beds to this family.

“The new bed is so much better, it doesn’t even make any sound when I sit on it” Aaliyah exclaimed on the day she received her new bed.IMG_1644

 

 

“I really this like new bed, it’s so soft!” Isaac shared once he was settled in.

We are so glad to be able to help children just like Aaliyah and Isaac and have donated over 200 this quarter alone.

If you know of a child in need of a bed refer them to our A Hope to Dream program.  Ashley Furniture donates hundreds of beds a year to children in need in our communities. You can help by purchasing any mattress from Ashley Furniture. For each mattress sold, Ashley gives $5 to the A Hope to Dream Program. Join us as we help give children a good night’s sleep.
