Factory Mattress has proudly supported the central Texas community for 42 years! Without our customers, we would not be where we are today, so we strive to give back to the community as often as we can. Take a look at the various community efforts we’ve made and the incredible organizations we work with below.
Mattress Donation to Burn Victim
Recently, Factory Mattress donated a premium mattress to a young woman who unfortunately was a victim of a house fire. The family lost most of their belongings, and their daughter did not have a bed to sleep on, only a recliner. For proper healing purposes, doctors wanted her to have a proper bed for a place of rest & recovery. That’s where we stepped in! We gladly donated a twin mattress & frame to the family. We are proud we could help them in their time of need & we wish her a full recovery!
|Season For Caring
For 10 years, Factory Mattress has proudly participated in the Statesman Season for Caring by donating mattresses, frames, and foundations to families in need. Each year, 12-featured families who are nominated by Interfaith Action of Central Texas receive donations from Factory Mattress and other companies. Over the past decade, Factory Mattress total donations amount is has donated $177,000 to those in need.
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
Pancreatic Cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S., taking more lives than breast cancer. This year Factory Mattress teamed up with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and Tempur-Pedic to help raise funds towards research to further the journey of finding a cure through the 2019 Rest Test Event.
The Rest Test is an annual fundraising event by Tempur-Pedic in support of PanCAN, and throughout the month of October, $10 was donated to PanCAN for each person that tried a Tempur-Pedic mattress at any of our Factory Mattress locations. With the help of our wonderful customers & community, we were able to raise $5,810 – the most out of any sleep shops that participated this year!
|Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas & San Antonio
Ronald McDonald House Charities is a non –profit organization that has supported families with critically injured or ill children around the world for over 40 years. Factory Mattress is honored to join in on these efforts. We strive to fulfill a Well-Being Wish List through donations from customers at our stores to help the Central Texas & San Antonio locations.
|The SAFE Alliance
The SAFE Alliance is a joint venture between Austin Children’s Shelter & SafePlace, and helps provide safety for families and individuals affected by domestic violence, exploitation, and sexual assault. Many of those that leave these situations only have the clothes on their back. Everyday items like deodorant, shampoo, & toiletries are the most needed by SafePlace, and each year we try to help them meet their needs.
|Texas Baptist Children’s Home
The Texas Baptist Children’s Home has been helping families in crisis since 1950, and Factory Mattress recently had the opportunity to work with the location in Round Rock, TX. Texas Baptist Children’s Home provides residential programs for single-parent families as well as prevention programs & community outreach.
