This summer, FXI donated thousands of bedding products with a retail value of one million dollars to local non-profit organizations focused on helping Indiana families who have been victims of natural disasters and adults fighting addiction. Following the company’s long legacy of giving back to those in need, FXI gave products, such as mattresses, pillows and mattress toppers, to two important philanthropic pillars in the community near its Auburn, IN facility: Mustard Seed Furniture Bank and the Serenity House.
“Community outreach is an important part of FXI’s corporate culture and we believe it is our responsibility to support the communities where our company thrives and our employees live, work and play,” said FXI Senior Vice President of Consumer Products, Diane Adams. “A good night’s sleep is something that so many of us take for granted. Our donation of mattresses and other sleep accessories will help families who have had their homes destroyed and those struggling to fight addictions have a safe, comfortable place to rest their heads at night. ”
The Mustard Seed Furniture Bank provides household furnishings to families and individuals as they rebuild their lives after suffering disaster, personal tragedy or other catastrophic misfortunes. Since 2002, it has assisted over 5,000 households, touching the lives of over 6,800 adults and 8,670 children. FXI provided the organization with over 9,000 pieces of premium foam products including pillows, mattress toppers and mattresses. The donation ensures that recipients will have good night’s sleep as they begin to rebuild their lives.
For over 25 years, Serenity House has consistently and successfully expanded substance abuse services throughout DuPage County in Indiana to meet the ever increasing demand for treatment. Serenity House serves hundreds of men and women each year through its residential and outpatient programs. The non-profit was a recipient of 50 twin mattresses courtesy of FXI to help residents have a more comfortable, restorative night’s sleep – an essential part of the recovery process.
