Warehouse staff deliver beds for Ramona's family
“I can’t stop grinning,” says Ramona, who came to Community Warehouse in search of a bed. Thanks to a generous donation from our partners at Mattress Lot and Parklane Mattresses, a beautiful luxury mattress was waiting for her.
Ramona struggled to recover from back surgery after a car accident left her unable to walk three years ago. Though she recovered the ability to walk, her injuries meant she couldn’t work – or afford rent. Her family became homeless and Ramona slept on uncomfortable cots and couches that didn’t provide any relief for her chronic pain. A firm, comfortable, quality mattress was essential for Ramona’s continued recovery and improved quality of life.
Support from donors like you and partnerships with local businesses and individual donations are what make it possible for Community Warehouse to connect those in need with quality donations. Local retailers Mattress Lot and Parklane Mattresses have provided Community Warehouse with countless clean mattresses that fly out the door just as soon as they come in.
“We love the fact that Community Warehouse offers tangible and direct help to families in crisis and need. This is not abstract,” say Mattress Lot founders Mary Ruth and Michael Hanna. “We’re super grateful that Community Warehouse makes it easy for companies to play a small role in helping people in need or crisis. Community Warehouse is a conduit between businesses that want to do the right thing, by giving donations and supporting families in need in our community.”
Now, with the help of a local housing assistance program, Ramona and her family have settled into a new home with furnishings from Community Warehouse. “I’m very happy to have a comfortable bed to sleep on,” says Ramona. “I love that Community Warehouse is here for us. Thank you so much for the help.”
Whether gently-used or brand-new, beds are the foundation of waking up to a brighter day. Your donations make a direct impact in the lives and homes of our neighbors in need.
