Article Summary: Company receives multiple new awards, including the nationally acclaimed Daily Point of Light Award, for its positive impact on the community.


Sacramento, California based retailer Sleep Train announced that it has won the prestigious, nationally- selected "Daily Point of Light" award from the Points of Light Foundation & Corporation for National and Community Service. Founded in 1989 under President George Bush, the award recognizes those who help find innovative ways to meet community needs and support the development of long-term solutions that positively impact social problems in local communities.


Sleep Train was also recently given a "Child Champions" award at the 13th annual awards luncheon of KidsFirst, an organization in the Sacramento region that works to ensure all children live in a safe environment. Additionally, the company was recognized at the "Every Child Deserves a Champion" event, held by the New Millennium Foster Family Agency, which helps match foster kids with nurturing homes. 



Sleep Train, has been committed to the plight of at-risk children since it was founded 25 years ago. In 2008, the company formalized this effort and created the Sleep Train Foster Kids Program to focus its philanthropy on providing important items such as clothing, shoes, pajamas, school supplies, gifts, and cash to foster organizations that aid the more than 60,000 foster children in California. The result of this effort is hundreds of thousands of donated items and more than $700,000 in cash.  



"The considerable impact of our Foster Kids Program has made a huge difference in the lives of foster children and their families, and we are grateful to be recognized for our efforts," said Terry Horsley, vice president of brand strategy, Sleep Train. "We are committed to our community and thankful for their contribution to this important cause.  It’s the collective whole that can make the most profound change."

To help support area foster children, Sleep Train’s annual Shoe Drive for Foster Kids is on now. Donations of new shoes in all sizes can be made at any Sleep Train store.
