Spurs Host Pajama Party, Donate Beds To Children

Spurs help donate beds to children in need

Dozens of San Antonio kids will sleep better now that they have a new bed of their own.

On Friday, the San Antonio Spurs teamed up with Ashley HomeStore to host a pajama party and give out 50 twin-sized beds to local children between the ages of 3-16. Before the giveaway, many of these kids didn’t have a bed of their own, or even a bed at all to sleep in.

“It’s really dramatic, they all sleep on one king-sized bed. They all  sleep in one bed and it’s fighting every night because they’re always  next to each other,” Josie Munoz, a San Antonio mother of six, said.  “They all have their own beds now.”

Ashley Furniture’s “Hope to Dream” program has given out over 80,000  beds in the last eight years. On Friday at the AT&T Center, each  child received a new mattress, a complete Spurs bedding set, pillows and  a stuffed teddy bear.

After the kids got to check out their new  beds and shoot some hoops on the Spurs home court, Spurs forward Rudy  Gay and guard Bryn Forbes joined the kids to sign autographs and take  pictures.

"Sleep is so important. Especially at that  age, sleep is so important. You always hear, 'if you don't sleep, you  don't grow,'” Gay said. “So kids, if you don't sleep, you don't get as  tall as us."
