Sleep Country USA Foster Kids


Sleep Country believes all children should have new warm coats to stay warm during the chilly winter months. Unfortunately, for nearly 20,000 foster children in the Northwest, the change in seasons can leave many without a warm coat to stay dry.  Help local foster children this fall and winter by bringing your gift of new coat to a Sleep Country store near you. Or donate online today, and the shopping will be done on your behalf. Click here for more information.
