The holidays are nearly here, and Mattress Firm’s Toy Drive is seeking the community’s help to ensure that local foster kids have a Merry Christmas.

While most kids spend Christmas Eve eagerly anticipating Santa’s arrival, kids in foster care often worry he won’t be able to find them at all. To ensure that every foster kid wakes up with a present on Christmas morning, there are a few ways your readers can give back. For parents, encourage kiddos to embrace the season of giving and ask them to pick out a new toy for a foster child in need. For others, give your ugly sweater party new meaning by incorporating a donation bin.

At your holiday work celebration, encourage attendees to donate a gift. Rally your friends, church, soccer team or school to host their own donation drives.

New, unwrapped gifts for all ages can be dropped off at any Mattress Firm store now through Dec. 18.

Gifts are needed for all ages – toddler to teen. The most requested items include sporting equipment, arts and crafts supplies, baby dolls, superhero figurines, electronics and gift cards.
