Mattress Donation benefits local Christian charities

Local Christian charities are elated about receiving 40 mattress sets from a furniture store out of Meridian to go toward tornado relief.

Mattress Express made the decision to donate 40 mattresses and 40 sets of box springs to help families struggling after the tornado. The Lamar Baptist Association and Christian Services split the bedding donation and will distribute them accordingly. Community members say bedding is the most needed item for families displaced by the storm.  If they've moved into temporary housing they may still be without furniture.

Matt Huber with Mattress Express says, "What we hope is that we can help them return to some kind of normalcy. You know, give them one less thing to worry about. They've got a lot on their plate and if we can do whatever we can to help them in the littlest way. Help them get a good night rest. You know maybe they'll wake up in the morning feeling better and more refreshed so that's what we're hoping."

Danny Henderson with the Lamar Baptist Association says, "Matt and the others, we couldn't have done it without you. And by doing what you did there are 20 families that are going to have a place to sleep or something to sleep on tonight. So, we're thankful for that."

Woodstock Furniture by Mattress Express is also donating $100 from the sale of every Sealy mattress toward a tornado relief fund.
