Burlington Mattress has grown with the Burlington area over the years and as an integral part of its community, we are dedicated to being the best neighbors possible. We give back to our neighborhood by focusing on values we share with our Vermont community. We value supporting those in need of a home and supplies as well as being stewards of the environment. We’ve teamed up with organizations that embody these values in our area. Scroll down to see who we support, how we contribute to them, and what you can do to get involved too!
Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity
Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity is an incredible organization and resource to Vermonters for many crucial reasons. Not only do they provide drop-off centers to donate home furnishings and appliances to, but they are able to provide these donations to those in need. Their centers also serve as a valuable resource for buying previously loved items. This opportunity helps our community financially, as well as the environment, by extending the life of household goods. Additionally, Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity builds home for locals and families through the help of local donors, like us, and their volunteers.
Annually, we donate 1% of a month’s profits from your purchases to Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity! Furthermore, we offer our staff volunteer days with this organization.
Beyond your purchase, you can volunteer to support Habitat for Humanity as well.
Committee on Temporary Shelter Serving Vermont
Our local Committee on Temporary Shelter, also known as COTS, is dedicated to ending homelessness. Their core values driving the organization are vital to many in our community. COTS advocates for human rights through housing. Moreover, their message and mission is that housing is a fundamental human right and emergency shelters are not a long-term solution. COTS organizes many donation drives throughout the year to collect items for redistribution like their backpack drive for kids going back to school!
Through our community, we are able to donate 1% of your purchase for a month to COTS to support them in their missions and the life-saving opportunities they provide to those in need.
Beyond your purchase, you can volunteer to support COTS as well.
The Nature Conservancy
Supporting and protecting our environment is one of our largest endeavors today and Burlington Mattress advocates for change in some serious ways. First, we prioritize working with ecologically focused companies that are held to strict environmental standards. Second, we work with The Nature Conservancy every year to help promote a positive ecological impact. Through TNC of Vermont, we plant hundreds of trees annually. To date, we have successfully planted thousands of trees. Third, we donate to the Elm Restoration Project. This project is crucial in combating the devastating Dutch Elm Disease by restoring Elm trees in an effort to create a healthier population.
The Nature Conservancy of Vermont is always working hard to solve one of our planet’s biggest challenges right in our own state, and beyond shopping with us, you can help support them too!
