BedCo Caring for the Community
BedCo Mattress Superstores kicked off their "Caring for the Community" campaign today. For every Restonic Mattress sold -- now through the end of December -- BedCo will donate a new mattress to a different Salvation Army charity in October, November and December.
Mike Vanier, of BedCo Mattress Superstores, says they hope to donate over 500 mattresses by the end of the year.
For the month of October the mattresses will go to the Salvation Army Female Emergency Shelter, SAFES.
Shannon Singleton, Executive Director of SAFES, says the BedCo donations mean that many of the women at the shelter will sleep on a new mattress for the first time in their lives.
BedCo Mattress Superstores has four locations in the Portland area.
You'll find more information about SAFES at the Salvation Army Portland Metro website.
