DENVER, Dec. 30, 2015 /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 more than $300,000 for those in need.
From November 1st to the 30th, DMC pledged to match every dollar donated to the 70 participating rescue missions, with a $2,500 cap per market. Donations totaling $161,000 were made directly to the missions and a number of organizations met their match goal. Though the full match goal wasn't met, DMC has decided to generously donate the full matched cap 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 DenverMattress Company is helping to ensure 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."
Association of Gospel Rescue Missions Now in its 103rd year, AGRM has nearly 300 rescue mission members across North America. Annually, AGRM members serve approximately 66 million meals, provide more than 20 million nights of shelter and housing, assist some 45,000 people in finding employment, provide clothing to more than 750,000 people, and graduate nearly 17,000 homeless men and women from addiction recovery programs into productive living.
