Education Foundation thanks communityDurango schools, and one generous business and its customers, recently scored a triple-win through the Matlock Furniture and Mattress spring education promotion.
The Durango Education Foundation board and staff thank Blair and Walter Matlock for the fundraiser they facilitated at their store throughout April. We also thank the many customers who donated to DEF; we’re so happy they were rewarded with hefty discounts on their Matlock purchases during the promotion. DEF loves it when an event has only winners, and we are grateful for such strong community support.
