Mattresses for the Military

Nick Boyett was in for quite a surprise when he woke up on the morning of November 30. 

A Green Bay Packers fan, Nick had no idea who would be visiting his house later in the day.

And boy was he surprised!

In spirit with the mission of Giving Tuesday, Bob’s Discount Furniture teamed up with the Green Bay Packers and Operation Homefront to donate mattresses to military families in the Green Bay area.

Bob’s Discount Furniture, Packers representatives and Operation Homefront spent most of Giving Tuesday distributing mattresses and putting smiles on faces.

Jarrett Bush helped put a smile on Boyett’s face when the former cornerback showed up at his house to assist with the mattress donation. 

“It was a great surprise,” said Boyett. 

Bush – whose father and brother were both in the military – showed his appreciation for the Boyett family.  

“I think spreading kindness is what the world needs most today, especially following the pandemic and giving to the military families is definitely along that path to doing so,” Bush said.

Operation Homefront

Operation Homefront is my fourth quarter Café Collection for a Cause partner. All of the money donated in my Cafés between Oct. 1 and December 31 will be presented to Operation Homefront. And best of all, I provide a dollar-for-dollar match up to $75,000. So, the more you give, the more I give!

Operation Homefront’s mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so that they can thrive – not simply struggle to get by – in the communities they worked so hard to protect.

For over 15 years, Operation Homefront has provided programs that offer relief through critical financial assistance and transitional housing programs; resiliency through permanent housing and caregiver support services; and recurring family support with programs and services throughout the year.

About the author / Bob

I consider myself the luckiest spokespuppet ever because I get to talk about the thing I love the most everyday – furniture! Tufted headboards, rustic finishes, the difference between a sofa and a couch (yes, there is a difference)… I could go on and on. Oh, I just love furniture and I’m SO excited that I have this blog to share my passion with you! It may take me a little longer to create posts – have you ever tried typing with clay hands – but I look forward to talking furniture with you!
