For the eleventh year in a row, the Denver Mattress Company has pledged to match every dollar that is donated to Hiway 80 Rescue Mission from Saturday, November 1st through Sunday, November 30th.

Thanks to this matching gift, your gift will go even farther to help people in need this Thanksgiving season.

The Denver Mattress Company will match every gift made to Hiway 80 Rescue Mission, up to $2,500, to use for the specific needs of our own community for necessities such as food, warm clothing, shelter, or assistance.

The $900,000 expansion project at the Hiway 80 Rescue Mission’s Women & Families Shelter is close to completion.  But the Mission still needs significant financial support ($250,000) from the community in order to open this important family shelter space by September.  The goal is to open the doors of the needed new facility debt free.  That way money raised can cover the everyday needs of families staying there instead of going towards debt service.
