Bohemia, N.Y. (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
On February 20, leading mattress review company, Online Bed Quilt, comments on a recent article published by WKTV, which details an organization’s effort to donate mattresses.
According to WKTV, the Compassion Coalition, a Utica, N.Y.-based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing necessities for low-income families, recently donated mattresses to families in need. The Coalition was granted $7,000 by the Mele Family Fund to purchase mattresses for 140 local families, WKTV reports.
After a bed bug infestation in 2009, and an increasingly high rate of poverty, many Utica residents were left without beds, the article said. It caused a big demand for mattresses in the area, especially with poverty-stricken families.
Representative Justin Maas from the mattress review company, Online Bed Quilt, commented on bed bug infestations as devastating. “It’s extremely hard to get rid of bed bugs,” he said. “Usually, there are sprays that get rid of bed bugs, but sometimes you just need to get rid of the mattress all together. That can be really expensive for most low-income families. However, there are retailers that sell discounted quality mattresses for low prices. These stores can help you find the best mattress for you and help keep costs down with payment plans.”
However, Charlie Sweet from the Compassion Coalition said she realized people could barely afford beds and needed assistance. "We just know from our work here at Compassion and going into homes and seeing children sleeping on sheets on the floors. We knew the need was great,” Sweet said to WKTV.
Maas said the Coalition is doing a great thing for local families. “Sleep is a necessary part of maintaining good health and mattresses are obviously needed to do that,” he said. “People without a quality mattress can really suffer from sleep deprivation or back problems. The Coalition did the right thing and everyone deserves a mattress to sleep on.”
