BARBOURSVILLE - Mattress Firm WV is hosting its second annual Tools For Teachers event on Saturday, Aug. 4, celebrating and supporting teachers in the Tri-State area.

From 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Mattress Firm’s Huntington Mall location, registered teachers can collect classroom basics like paper and pencils. They will also be treated to free lunch from Chipotle, and be entered for a chance to win a new bed from Corsicana Mattress along with other prizes.

“After surveying local teachers in 2017, Mattress Firm learned that our teachers routinely spend hundreds of dollars from their own pockets each year to stock their classrooms,” the company stated in a news release. “Tools For Teachers is a special way to thank and recognize the special educators of our children, who selflessly dedicate themselves to our kids every day of the school year.”

Tools For Teachers is also supported by Todd Judy Ford and Huntington Family Dental, along with Chipotle and KEE100.

Donations of school supplies will be accepted right up until the event at Mattress Firm, Todd Judy Ford, Huntington Family Dental and KEE100 station.

Tools for Teachers will be hosted live by Dave & Jenn from KEE100.

Teachers can register in advance by emailing toolsforteacherswv@gmail.com. Valid Teacher ID is required to pick up supplies, receive free lunch from Chipotle and for entry to prize draws. Follow Mattress Firm WV-TriState on Facebook for contest winners and additional event details.
