Gallery Furniture owner Jim ‘Mattress Mack’ McIngvale is calling on Houstonians to help homebound senior citizens.
On March 15, Mack in partnership with Mayor Sylvester Turner, and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson announced a plan to help seniors and low-income families during the global pandemic.
Through their combined efforts, more than 10,000 non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies and toiletries were donated for Houstonians in need.
But Mack doesn’t plan to stop there. Mack’s plea is for Houstonians to continue to donate non-perishable food, toiletries, cleaning supplies, or bottled water for the vulnerable community during the coronavirus pandemic.
Donations can be dropped off at Gallery Furniture locations.
