Mattress Mack: Lessons and Stories from Hurricane Harvey


As the floodwaters began to rise during Hurricane Harvey, Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale made the decision to open his Gallery Furniture locations to hundreds of displaced Texans. Already a Houston icon for his entrepreneurship and philanthropy, Mattress Mack’s heroic efforts made him the most recognizable face of Houston’s strength and resiliency during Harvey. How did he navigate the complex logistics of moving supplies and people amidst the crisis? What can he teach nonprofits about volunteer management? How does he view his role as both fundraiser and philanthropist? Join us for a conversation with Mattress Mack as he shares stories and lessons from the days (and nights) following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.
