If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to give back to your community, Mattress Firm is making it easy with their Pajama Drive for Foster Kids.

Kids grow up quickly, which means clothes and essential items are replaced often. That’s why Mattress Firm is collecting pajamas of all sizes – toddler to teen – to help foster children and parents sleep a little easier at night. To ensure that every foster kid can enjoy a cozy night’s rest, here are a few ways to help out:

1. Drop off donations of new PJs in any size at your nearest Mattress Firm store.

2. Host a drive of your own – rally coworkers, friends, neighbors and family to collect pajamas for foster children.

3. If you can’t make it to a store but still want to help out, consider making a monetary donation online at mattressfirmfosterkids.org.

The drive is on through Feb. 18. Donations of new pajamas in any size – from toddler to teen – can be dropped off at any Mattress Firm store. Use the store locator at mattressfirm.com to find your nearest location.
