CORPUS CHRISTI - Mission 911 and Mattress Firm have teamed up in a week-long fundraising event called "stuff the mattress." Mission 911 temporarily houses the homeless, provides food, clothing, job opportunities along with other forms of assistance in hopes of getting the person(s) back on his or her feet.
Tony Reyes with Mission 911 says it's his goal to raise enough money to help break down the barriers of poverty. All week long from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Mattress Firm in Moore Plaza, people can "stuff" the mattress with money and, for $10, get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a $1,000 shopping spree at Mattress Firm.
The fundraiser is a kickoff to the 6th Annual Chipping Away At Homelessness Golf Tournament Friday, Sept. 9th at North Shore Country Club. For more information or inquiries about the fundraiser or charity golf tournament, call Mission 911 at 361-882-0911.
