United Breast Cancer Foundation volunteers deliver free Tempur-Pedic Mattresses to needy families.

UBCF Free Mattress Program

Cancer survivor receives new mattress

Gift-in-Kind donations are an important way for UBCF to provide high-quality, useful products to those we service.

In October of this year the United Breast Cancer Foundation provided over 100 needy families affected by breast cancer with brand new Tempur-Pedic Mattresses. Recognizing that restful sleep is critical to health and wellness, UBCF's Director of Operations, Beth Reichart, along with 40 volunteers from The Health Wagon and UVA Wise Women's Softball Team, distributed 140 Tempur-Pedic mattresses to low income individuals and families in Southwestern Virginia.

Dianna, a breast cancer survivor, gratefully received twin mattresses for herself and her child. As a single mom, struggling to make ends meet, Dianna was grateful to UBCF and our supporters for making this donation possible.
