The "Home at Last" program is designed to collect new and gently used home goods for families and individuals in the St. Charles County and surrounding areas affected by recent flooding.
Mattress Direct has worked with the Sharing Shed for four years collecting gently used sheets, blankets, and pillows at all Mattress Direct Showrooms, helping collect gently used mattresses through DeliverPRO, and building twin mattresses at Campbell Mattress.
"When I first met Sherry from the Sharing Shed, she told me that they received some second hand queen size mattresses, but rarely were twin mattresses donated. They often were forced to sleep children on the floor or put three or four kids in one queen size bed together," said, Pat McCurren, CEO of Mattress Direct, Inc.
"We're excited to be developing the 'Home at Last' program with The Sharing Shed," McCurren continued. "Every child deserves a bed of their own. Sherry and the volunteers at the Sharing Shed are working hard week in and week out to help provide the basic necessities for those who are suddenly in crisis, and it's been an honor to help them collect the items they need to do such important work."
