DENVER, Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, The Salvation Army Intermountain Division's "Together Doing Even More Good" campaign generated donations of more than $500,000. As it has every year for the past 17 years, Colorado-based Denver Mattress Company matched the first $150,000. Together, the combined total set a record for the most raised to date.
"We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of generosity by so many in our community, including our longstanding partner Denver Mattress," says Divisional Commander Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Starrett. "With the incredible success of this year's holiday campaign, the Intermountain Division will be able to help so many more Coloradans in need."
"Together Doing Even More Good" was the new themeline for this year's campaign. This seemingly subtle variation of The Salvation Army's popular tagline emphasized the significant impact of this matching gift program. Beyond its financial gift, Denver Mattress also created a dedicated landing page (www.denvermattresscares.com) to support the campaign as well as in-store signage, e-mail sends, direct mailers, newspaper ads, television spots, and paid media.
"As a company, we are truly honored to be a small part of the inspiring work done each and every day by The Salvation Army," adds Dan Visser, president of Denver Mattress. "We cannot thank enough those who joined us this year and in years past."
