The Gardner’s Gives Back Mission:

Do more in Lancaster County Each and Every Day to Lift Others Up That Need a Helping Hand.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1: When you purchase a mattress, take a Gardner’s Gives Back bag home and place any non-perishable food item in it. Canned soup, boxed rice, canned vegetables, canned fruits, boxed meals. Put as much into this bag as you see fit.

Step 2: On the day of your delivery the Gardner’s delivery team will ask you for your Gardner’s Gives Back donation bag.

Step 3: Once a month Gardner’s Mattress & More will donate all the food items that were collected to a charity and Gardner’s will make a matching food donation, pound for pound, of all collected food items.

OR, simply drop off your donated items at Gardner’s – you don’t have to be a Gardner’s customer to donate!

Here’s two local food banks we’re currently working with:

Community Cupboard of Elizabethtown PA
Hempfield Area Food Pantry @ Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church Landisville
  • The food banks collect non-perishable food items.

We also are collecting for pets!

Pitties Love Peace Needs:
  • Blankets/towels
  • High quality dog food
  • Treats (except treats made in China or rawhide)
  • Durable toys (Kong toys or any other brand that is durable – there are many!)
  • Benebones Puppy toys (for when we have young babies and litters of puppies – stuffed toys are also given to puppies)
  • Nylabones (for heavy chewers)
  • Sterilized white/natural bones
  • Peanut butter (to stuff Kongs and bones)
  • 6 foot leashes
  • Laundry detergent
  • Bleach Paper towels
