Gallery Furniture Furnishes New Fulshear Police Department

Gallery Furniture has become more than a place to shop for your home but, a representation of what it means to give back.

Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale, the exuberant owner of Houston’s best family business success story, is known for his crazy bets for free furniture, fast-talking commercials and most of all for his amazing contributions to the community he has thrived in. The amazing article written by further confirms that Jim’s generosity knows no bounds as the charitable acts just keep coming!

Earlier this month, the Fulshear Police Department was in need of furniture for its new location, with an opening scheduled for November 1, 2014. They reached out to the furniture store and got a speedy response that wasn’t expected.

Mike Martin of Gallery Furniture quickly contacted and met with them to discuss the needs of the department. Mike toured the new department and said he’d call back to discuss pricing for all of the items that were needed. Surprisingly, that call came the next day with the wonderful news that Mattress Mack himself had decided to donate every single piece of furniture they had spoken about free of cost!

Gallery Furniture delivered to the Fulshear Police Department on October 9, 2014 for the price of a handshake. The department will use the amazing furniture donation to hold their community events, such as “Coffee with a Cop,” eliminating the need to find an available venue. The furniture donated amounts to around $20,000, including eight desks, a large conference table, and sofa for the police department to use.

This isn’t the first time that Gallery Furniture has donated their beautiful, quality furniture for a great cause. The store donates to various organizations, families in need and more recently, the store has an opportunity for nominated teacher to win a full teacher’s lounge makeover at their school based on community votes.  You can nominate your favorite teachers or school here!

We hope the Fulshear Police Department enjoys their new furniture and are so proud to have “Mattress Mack” as a pillar of our community who strives to give as much as he can to the city and surrounding areas that have contributed to his success over the years.
