Contest Runner-Up: Mattress Donation Helps Families Heal in Times of Need

Organization: Rugged Cross Ranch Ministries, dba 5Rock Ranch
Lives Impacted: 500
Donation: Tempur-PedIc Mattresses 

 Rugged Cross Ranch Ministries, dba 5Rock Ranch, located in Yamhill, OR,  strives to restore faith, hope & love to the fatherless & floundering. Our goal is that those individuals are restored to Him, renewed in Him, and established for Him. This is done through the Word of God! We call it HIS Journey (Healing Injured Souls). This is done during the school year and people must apply to attend each 4-month term. 5Rock is a resource for the church for retreats and gatherings, but we have relationships with the church, so we can join in the battle of fatherless. We want to come alongside pastors and churches to provide a place where they can send hurting people to seek the Lord with all their heart, distracted by the pressures of the world. 

5Rock Ranch offers a place where single moms & kids and floundering adults can come and regain hope in their lives. We have a program where folks live at the ranch full-time, and we also are a place where single moms & their kids can come to a free camp. Thank you to Tempur-Pedic for these mattresses, as they are a key component to an amazing overnight stay at the ranch. 

Our camp focuses on helping women and families in stressful situations they never thought they would be in. We look forward to doing something as simple as spoiling the women (and kids) with a nice room and a good mattress. It enables us to show love and make them feel special. Can you imagine being a mom with six kids and suddenly you’re left without a husband and father for your kids? That’s the devastating reality for one mom living at the ranch. She tried to make it on her own, but after a year of great struggles, she was introduced to 5Rock Ranch. She moved to the ranch just a couple of weeks after we received the mattress donation and we were able to provide stability in their bunkhouse room by setting up a permanent, comfortable space for them. Her goal is to be at the ranch for 2 years to gain the healing and restoration they all need to be able to live a life full of joy again. Thank you Good360 and Tempur-Pedic for helping us contribute to the restoration these families’ needs during hard times.
