Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 26, 2015
Iconic Southern California mattress retailer Sit ‘n Sleep, along with Tempur-Pedic, the most highly recommended bed in America, today announced the joint donation of 75 mattresses to Jenesse Center, Inc., a Los Angeles domestic violence intervention program and shelter. The donation is to commemorate Jenesse’s 35-year anniversary of service to the Southern Los Angeles community and will benefit adults and children seeking support and housing to assist in their crisis situations. The generous gift will replace the shelter’s old worn out beds, some of which are more than a decade old, and provide extra comfort, support, and a good night’s sleep to the families who rely on Jenesse Center’s housing.
“Sit ‘n Sleep is proud to donate these mattresses to such a worthy organization as the Jenesse Center,” said Larry Miller, CEO, Sit ‘n Sleep. “A good night’s sleep is not a privilege; everyone deserves a healthy, safe, comfortable bed and a restful night of sleep. Sleep is essential to overall wellbeing and we hope that these Tempur-Pedic mattresses provide extra relief to the brave women, and children entering the center to make a change in their lives,” Miller added.
Jenesse Center aims to prevent and end the cycles of domestic violence through education, research, resources, and advocacy provided to individuals and families across the community. The center relies on donations and support from community members like Sit ‘n Sleep. The donation was presented to the center by Sit ‘n Sleep’s CEO at a ceremony on March 26 at 10:00am. The event was attended by Jenesse Center CEO Karen Earl, board members, supporters, recipients of the shelter’s assistance programs, Sit ‘n Sleep CEO Larry Miller, management, and employees.
“We are beyond thrilled to receive this generous donation from Sit ‘n Sleep,” said Karen Earl, CEO, Jenesse Center. “The donation allows us to focus our resources on expanding our services and programs to more women and children in need. These quality Tempur-Pedic mattresses are greatly appreciated by the Jenesse Center families and will make a huge impact in their comfort and quality of sleep.”
The donated mattresses will be used in the center’s emergency and transitional shelter facilities across Southern California. On average, emergency housing provides one month of residence, while transitional housing provides up to two years of residence for families. Other services provided by Jenesse Center include a domestic violence crisis hotline, case management, educational programs, health programs, counseling, legal services, youth enrichment programs, after school programs, summer camp, transportation, and more.
“We’re so happy to be able to participate in this worthwhile cause and provide this basic necessity to those in need,” said Daliah Santana, Southern California Regional Sales Director, Tempur-Pedic North America, LLC. “The donation is a way to express our support for the Jenesse Center for all that they do to help the local victims of domestic abuse in the Los Angeles community.”
Sit ‘n Sleep has been dedicated to many local charities throughout his career. The company is involved with organizations including Habitat for Humanity, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Padres Contra El Cancer, City of Hope and many more.
