5:30 PM Jim McIngvale "Mattress Mack" awarded Social Work Program 2017 Person of the Year


On Thursday, January 25th at 5:30 p.m. here in the College of Public Service (C-100), the Social Work Program has the distinct honor of awarding their Person of the Year award to Houston’s own Jim McIngvale of Gallery Furniture. It was in 1981 that Mr. McIngvale, otherwise known as Mattress Mack, and his wife Linda, started Gallery Furniture with five thousand dollars and a dream. Mack began television advertising early on and with his motto of “Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell and advertise”, he quickly became a household name. 

 

If you live in Houston (and even if you don’t) you’ve no doubt heard of Mr. McIngvale’s generosity. During Hurricane Harvey, Mack sheltered many Houstonians in the Gallery Furniture facility. In fact, some of our very own faculty were assisted.

 

Please join us at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 25th as we honor Jim McIngavle (aka Mattress Mack) as the 2017 UHD Social Work Person of the Year.

 

Some of Mack’s charitable contributions include:
  • Co-founded the Peace of Mind Foundation for those affected by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder 
  • Funded St. Luke’s Mobile Stroke Unit
  • Large contributor to Texas Heart Institute, Baylor College of Medicine and Harvard Medical School
  • Instrumental in getting Menninger Clinic to move to Houston to provide mental health care to Houston by providing a multi-million dollar donation
  • Fed 25,000 people Thanksgiving dinner for several years
  • Annual Christmas give-away furnishing hundreds of housefuls of furniture for the past 30 years
  • Bought 10,000 toys for needy children, distributed during the holiday
  • One of the largest contributors to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo with over $4 million given
  • Helped start and continuously fund the KickStart Kids Program in Houston
  • Furnished USO facilities around the world
  • Hosted events for and donated to the Salvation Army
  • Donated thousands of dollars of furniture to hundreds of teacher lounges in Houston area schools
  • Helped to raise over $12 million dollars for the Bush/Clinton fund to aid those affected by the Tsunami in Southeast Asia and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
  • Underwrote YMCA playground at Reliant Stadium for Katrina Evacuees and housed several hundred evacuees during hurricane crisis
  • Underwrote National OCF Conference held in Houston
  • Recipient of Mental Health Association Award in 2005
  • Donated tennis racquets to inner city kids that would not otherwise have the opportunity to take tennis lessons
