Fort Benning Family Receives New Beds from Ashley Furniture HomeStore | Military
FORT BENNING, GA - Ashley Furniture HomeStore-Columbus will deliver their first A Hope to Dream bed donations today to a military family that recently suffered a devastating fire in their off-base home. Ronnie and Nonnie Davis will now live on the Fort Benning base, and will receive four Ashley Sleep twin mattress sets, frames and four comforter sets for their four children, who range in age from 9 to 17.
“After we received the A Hope to Dream application, we knew that beds were an immediate need for the Davis family,” says John Summerford, Manager of the Columbus Ashley Furniture HomeStore. “Our goal is to get a regular routine of a good night’s sleep to these four children, as soon as possible.”
A Hope to Dream, launched in the Turner’s HomeStores in January 2012, seeks to provide children in need with comfortable mattresses for a good night’s sleep. Since the program began last year, Ashley has made a $5 donation to A Hope to Dream for every mattress purchased by customers at participating locations. These donations go toward purchasing new twin beds for children nominated by local community members.
Winning nominations are chosen based on need, originality and expression of thought. The next selection will be in the last week of March, with winners notified the first week of April 2012.
Those wishing to nominate a child can visit http://www.ahopetodream.com or request an electronic application by emailing AHopeToDream@ashleyfurniture.com. In-store applications are also being accepted at participating Ashley Furniture HomeStores, including: Columbus, GA and Spanish Fort, AL.
