Ashley Homestore's Hope to Dream Program Partners With Metropolitan Ministries to Donate 50 Beds to Children in Need

HOLIDAY, Fla. – On Thursday, June 25, Ashley HomeStore’s Hope to Dream program delivered 50 beds to Metropolitan Ministries. The donation, in partnership with Metropolitan Ministries, will provide a good night’s sleep to children in their transitional housing program. Each of the recipients will be provided with a brand-new bed, including: a twin mattress, bed frame, sheets, pillow and comforter. Employees from the Ashley HomeStore in New Port Richey joined in on the delivery day.

“The work that Metropolitan Ministries does in our community is greatly needed and appreciated,” said Derek Jones, Store Manager, Ashley HomeStore-New Port Richey. “I am honored to be a part of this delivery and an ambassador to the Hope to Dream program. These children deserve this gift and we hope it supports their needs.”

Metropolitan Ministries’ services are designed to help homeless and at-risk children and families, no matter how serious their needs. Whether they need to get off the streets at night, or they’re seeking education so they can get a job that will support their family, they can help.

"Dreams really do come true thanks to this partnership with Ashley HomeStore," said Tim Marks, Metropolitan Ministries President and CEO. "This donation of bed frames and mattresses will have a huge impact on families moving into homes of their own after graduating from our program. These determined families work tirelessly to accomplish life-changing goals at Metropolitan Ministries, and many times something as simple as a bed for their next home is the last thing on their list. Thank you, Ashley, for your continued partnership to bring hope and peaceful nights of sleep for so many embarking on a new journey."

Hope to Dream was founded in 2010 on the guiding principle that every child deserves a good night’s sleep. A portion of the proceeds for every mattress purchased at a participating Ashley HomeStore in the U.S. and Canada helps pay for a bed for an underserved child. Over 525 Ashley HomeStores participate in the program to date, and over 100,000 beds have been donated.
