DENVER, Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Denver Mattress Co., LLC (DMC) and the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM) are pleased to announce that their charity campaign this holiday season raised $255,081 for those in need.
From November 1st to the 30th, DMC pledged to match every dollar donated to the 69 participating rescue missions, with a $2,500 cap per market. Donations totaling $105,081 were made and a number of organizations met their match goal. Though the entire list of missions did not reach the original $150,000 DMC pledged cap, DMC has decided nonetheless to generously donate the entire amount to the participating missions.
"Once again," said Association of Gospel Rescue Missions President John Ashmen, "our friends at Denver Mattress Company have shown they understand that the real bottom line in life is how we care for our neighbors in need. It is so fitting that an organization called Denver Mattress Company is ensuring that thousands of men, women, and children will have a warm, safe place to sleep. If every company in America would follow their example, we would start to see solutions to some of our greatest social concerns."
