DENVER, Oct. 28, 2020 -- The Denver Mattress Co., LLC (DMC) is pleased to announce the 18th anniversary of its annual charity partnership with Citygate Network (formerly known as the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions), as together DMC and Citygate Network continue to help those in need during the holidays.
For every mattress sold, DMC will donate $15 to one of 48 Citygate Network missions in 26 states from November 1 through November 30. The donations from DMC will be put to good use, assisting people in need—people who are hungry, homeless, abused, and addicted and require essential care at a time when the weather in many places is turning colder. DMC's total matching donation will be up to $150,000.
Citygate Network President John Ashmen says, “Our friends at Denver Mattress Co., LLC have become vital partners with us in saving lives and moving people from human suffering to human flourishing through the work of life transformation. We love engaging with them because we know their hearts: This ongoing initiative is not a marketing ploy; rather, it is a reflection of DMC’s heart for the poor and powerless in our country. They are the real deal.”
DMC supports donation efforts with in-store point of purchase materials, a social media campaign, and local promotion by Citygate Network members. Last year's efforts generated an abundance of community support in all of the cities in which there were participating member missions, plus a contribution of $150,000 by DMC.
Founded in 1906, Citygate Network has more than 300 rescue missions and similar ministries in membership throughout North America. In most cities, a member of Citygate Network is the largest homeless services provider; and in some cities, it is the only homeless services provider. Annually, Citygate Network members serve approximately 68 million meals, provide more than 25 million nights of lodging, distribute clothing to more than 750,000 people, graduate nearly 20,000 men and women from addiction recovery programs, and assist some 45,000 adults in finding gainful employment.
