RMHC of the Carolinas provides a place for families to call home while staying close by their hospitalized child at little to no cost. The House in Greenville sits across from the Greenville Health System Children’s Hospital and Memorial Hospital. The charity recently constructed a $3.5 million, 15-room, 21-bed addition that effectively doubles the number of families they can serve in the community and surrounding areas.
Driven by a need to protect the new mattresses from bed bugs, spills and other accidents that could require premature replacement, the organization approached Protect-A-Bed requesting a donation of mattress protectors.
“Our mattress protectors effectively extend the lifespan of a mattress as well as provide a healthy, clean and comfortable sleep environment,” said James Bell, CEO, Protect-A-Bed. “As we know from the hospitality industry, premature replacement of bedding due to spills, accidents, and bed bugs represents a significant cost. When we’re talking about a charity that has to watch every penny, replacement of even a few mattresses can be potentially devastating to their budget.”
“This sponsorship was an easy choice for Protect-A-Bed,” added John Rachid, President, Protect-A-Bed. “The families that Ronald McDonald House serves are going through so much. It’s a little thing, but hopefully having a clean and comfortable place to sleep while they are caring for a loved one can make the process a little bit easier on them.”
