BedMart donates Tempur-Pedic mattresses
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, November 26, 2013
PORTLAND — BedMart Mattress Superstores, a family owned and operated mattress retailer here, recently made its second annual donation of Tempur-Pedic mattresses to Oregon families in need. Last year, BedMart donated more than $100,000 worth of products to Portland-area Women's Shelters.
This year the retailer delivered 105 mattresses to two organizations dedicated to serving Oregon families and communities: Community Warehouse and Albertina Kerr. In addition to delivering Tempur-Pedic mattresses, BedMart also provided complimentary mattress protectors from GBS Enterprises to help support Portland's vulnerable communities.
Community Warehouse helps thousands of recipients create safe and stable homes each year.
"While many of us have lots of things to be thankful for, some of us are most thankful for a bed to sleep in at night. We thank BedMart for making this possible for many families who will visit the Warehouse in the upcoming weeks," said Jesse Dobson, Westside program manager.
Albertina Kerr strengthens Oregon families and communities by helping children, adults and families with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges.
"Providing a safe, nurturing environment for children with significant developmental disabilities is an important part of the intensive 24-hour care Albertina Kerr provides," said Amy Miner, communications manager. "A good night's sleep is vital for every child and now these kids and teens will enjoy comfortable new mattresses thanks to BedMart."
"The entire BedMart family is proud to contribute to such great causes," said Elana Stone, vice president and spokeswoman of BedMart Mattress Superstores. "We're a company supported by the local community, so being able to reciprocate and give back annually means a lot to us."
