School Supply Drive


One of the biggest concerns on every parent’s mind is the education of their children. The best way to start off the day is with a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast, but children also need the right tools. Unfortunately, it is a struggle for some parents to provide all the items their children will need and many kids will not have everything on their school supply list. This year, Texas Mattress Makers is a participating sponsor for the inaugural KHOU Supplies for Success school supply drive. This program benefits children enrolled at DePelchin Children’s Center. DePelchin, founded in 1892, is the leading center in Texas for children’s well-being with a focus on mental health, foster care, and adoption services.

Bring in any of the school supplies found on this list to help a child in your community today! Donations will be accepted Aug. 3-16 and can be placed in any of the red drop boxes found throughout our showroom floor. Each customer who donates will receive 5% off their purchase. No purchase is necessary to participate – feel free to stop by with your donations at any time during our normal business hours.

Donations can also be made directly to DePelchin, at the KHOU 11 studio, or directly online via the Amazon Wish List.

Every child should have the supplies they need to be prepared for their education. With the participation of our community, we hope to help upwards of 1,500 students start their school year with confidence and tools they need to succeed!
