MLILY USA donated 13 mattresses to The House That Mercy Built, a non-profit, faith-based residential program based in Tellico Plains, Tennessee. The donation provided a newly opened shelter with enough mattresses to address its bedding needs.
The House That Mercy Built provides a safe place for women suffering from drug or alcohol abuse. While they reside at the house, women have the opportunity to take classes in life and parenting skills, health nutrition and work ethics. In-house tutoring for the general education development (GED) test and assistance for college-bound candidates is also provided. Located on eight acres, the first house opened in 2011. While women are at the house for care, they are under 24-hour supervision and are responsible for helping to care for the house and property.
“We believe strong communities make for strong companies, and organizations like The House That Mercy Built help make the greater Knoxville area a better community for our team,” said Stephen Chen, president of MLILY USA. “This organization provides vital services to women looking to better themselves and their situation, and we’re honored to be able to contribute to the organization’s sleep needs with our Harmony + mattresses.”
Giving back and supporting the community is an integral part of MLILY’s corporate ethos. As an ongoing supporter of Special Spaces, a non-profit organization that transforms the bedrooms of children with cancer into healthy dream spaces, the company is committed to giving back to its community.
In addition to supplying Special Spaces with mattresses for use in the room makeovers, MLILY has consistently donated to storm relief efforts and other needs throughout the state of Tennessee.
