Jacksonville, Florida (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
On Thursday night, January 30, 2014, five children from three local families enjoyed their first great night’s sleep in their own beds! Ashley Furniture HomeStore-Jacksonville provided the beds to these children through the “A Hope to Dream” program. The deliveries to these local families kicked off the 2014 “A Hope to Dream” initiative in Jacksonville; a nation-wide effort to provide beds for children in need that began with Ashley Furniture HomeStores right here on the First Coast.
Since 2008 “A Hope to Dream” has provided nearly 9,000 beds nationally to children in need. With this first delivery of the new year, Ashley Furniture HomeStore-Jacksonville took its first step to meet the program’s new national commitment to provide 5,000 beds to less fortunate children in 2014 alone! Every month, Ashley Furniture HomeStore-Jacksonville and members of its project partner’s team; the Jacksonville Jaguars, review applications for children to receive new beds.
The families are nominated by friends, family and social service agencies. If you know of a child who needs a bed you can submit your nomination at any Ashley Furniture HomeStore showroom on the First Coast, or online at http://www.ahopetodream.com.
