The Bedding Industry Gives Back
Spring Air’s Love Your Melon Back Supporter Mattress
If there’s one thing the bedding industry knows how to do, it’s how to provide comfort and support to sleepers across the globe. But many companies are stepping up to offer even more to their communities. We applaud the following businesses on the many ways in which they are giving back to those in need.
Bedding Industries of America—Eclipse/Eastman House partnered with Precision Textiles to donate mattress sets to Beds for Kids, a Charlotte, N.C.-based non-profit group that provides beds to children whose families are in need. The companies also teamed up with Texas licensee, Sleep Designs, to manufacture and donate tractor-trailer loads of twin mattresses for use in temporary and long-term shelters housing people displaced by Hurricane Harvey and, along with Knickerbocker Bed Co., delivered mattress sets and bedframes for those in need through local Salvation Army relief efforts.
