BedMart, Tempur-Pedic donate $70,000 in mattresses
March 16, 2017,
HONOLULU — BedMart Mattress Superstores, the largest family owned and operated mattress retailer in Hawaii, will donate $70,000 worth of Tempur-Pedic mattresses to Hawaii families in need.
During its first annual donation event to be held on April 4 at its Honolulu store, BedMart will donate 70 mattresses to Helping Hands Hawaii, an organization dedicated to serving Hawaii’s most vulnerable families and individuals to develop community self-sufficiency. In addition to the Tempur-Pedic mattresses, BedMart will provide mattress protectors from GBS Enterprises.
Helping Hands Hawaii was founded in 1974 and connects individuals, families and organizations with essential human and material resources.
“Many of our families struggle with poverty and find it difficult to pay for their basic necessities every month, like rent, utilities and food,” said Jan M. Harada, president and CEO of Helping Hands Hawaii. “For them, including those who are transitioning from homelessness to housing, sleeping on a bed is a luxury that they cannot afford. This donation will make a significant and immediate impact on 70 individuals or families in our community, and we are so grateful to the team at BedMart for reaching out to help local families in need.”
BedMart is a family owned and operated business that started in 1992 with one store in Portland, Oregon. Since March 2015, it has opened four locations in Hawaii, now serving Oahu, Hilo, Kona and Maui.
