Ho! Ho! Ho! Sleep Country USA's Secret Santa Toy Drive Gives Area Foster Kids a Magical Holiday

Individuals and Businesses Throughout the Pacific Northwest Are Invited to Participate in This Annual Campaign by Donating New Toys, Games, Books and Movies for Children

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2006 --For most children around the globe the holidays signify a magical, fun time spent with family and loved ones. However, for the more than 23,000 foster kids in Oregon and Washington, the holidays can be a difficult time, marked by feelings of sadness and incredible loneliness. To help make this time more special, Sleep Country USA, the Northwest's largest seller of premium mattresses, is holding its annual Secret Santa Toy Drive.

Beginning on November 20, 2006, individuals and businesses can donate new, unwrapped toys to any one of the company's more than 60 stores throughout the region. Gifts of new toys, games, and children's books and movies are sought to help kids of all ages have a wonderful holiday season. Get yourself, your family, your friends, even your office mates into the giving spirit by making a donation before the drive ends on December 17th. Santa and his elves will need a little time to wrap all these gifts!

"Giving is the heart of the holiday season, and there's no one more deserving than area children who might otherwise be deprived during such a generous time," said Terry Horsley, executive vice president marketing & merchandising, Sleep Country USA. "We hold several drives throughout the year to help these children, and I believe that this is by far one of the most important ones. We encourage you to put on your Santa hat, grab some elves and help spread the cheer by making a donation and giving a little holiday magic to foster children throughout the region."

For the donation drop-off location nearest to you, please use the Sleep Country store locator at www.sleepcountry.com or call 1-888-88-SLEEP. The store hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
