Protect-A-Bed donation assists Jakarta flood victims
Thomas Russell -- Furniture Today, February 6, 2013
Chicago - Protect-A-Bed and Massindo Group have donated 60 foam mattresses and mattress encasements to victims of a massive flood that is immobilizing Jakarta.
The Special Command Forces in the area, Kopassus, helped Massindo Group employees distribute the mattresses, food, flashlights, bottled water and medication to flood victims.
To distribute the mattresses, Massindo Group's team covered the mattresses with Protect-A-Bed waterproof mattress encasements and placed the boxed supplies on top. Because roads are impassable due to high water, the protected mattresses were floated to recipients.
