Sleep Experts, the Dallas/Fort Worth mattress retailer that donates every old bed for charity, joins Dallas Children's Advocacy Center (DCAC) in recognizing April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month and encouraging the North Texas community to learn more about this important issue.

"At the heart of our business is a commitment to helping families in need through our community partners, by donating recycled mattresses and helping raise awareness for their causes," said Christine Cook, president of Sleep Experts. "Throughout April we observe Child Abuse Prevention Month and salute DCAC for their efforts in serving severely abused children and helping empower parents and professionals in our common cause to protect children."

"Each year, nearly 6,000 children are victims of child abuse in Dallas County," said Lynn Davis, president and chief executive officer of Dallas Children's Advocacy Center. "Each of us has a role to play in creating a community in which EVERY child is safe from harm. We encourage everyone this month to learn more and help us spread the word about preventing child abuse."

Dallas Children's Advocacy Center is a nonprofit public/private collaboration that provides a coordinated, multi-agency approach to the investigation, intervention, and treatment of child sexual and physical abuse. DCAC provides education and resources to parents and the community, as well as therapy and support for abused children and their families. For more information visit DCAC.org.
