Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, June 14, 2012
MISSOULA, Mont. — Bedding retailer Sleep City has given 700 mattresses to people in need through its Sleep4All program and is seeking mattress donations to continue giving, the company announced.
"We are passionate about this program and excited about its continued success," said Patti Earling, director of marketing for 12-store Sleep City.
Since its launch last August, Sleep City's Sleep4All program has been providing beds to needy individuals in Montana, Idaho and Washington.
"Our local communities have been fantastic. We could not help nearly as many families without the support of our communities," said Mark Wells, the company's vice president.
The program is most in need of twin and full mattress sizes and is seeking donations of those sizes, Wells said.
"The majority of the requests we receive are for children who are sleeping without a bed," he said. "We want to provide a bed for these kids to sleep in."
Sleep4All includes a mattress recycling program, mattress donation drop off points at Sleep City locations, donations of new beds to organizations in need, and an online resource center to connect those who need mattresses with those who want to help.
