Relief Bed International Partners with Brentwood Home to Support Homeless Shelters and Disaster Relief Organizations

Share Article

UPDATE: Relief Bed International has distributed more than 12,000 beds since its inception in 2015.

Relief Bed International is honored to formally welcome a new member to its growing tribe of “Giving” partners. Brentwood Home, headquartered in Los Angeles, CA since 1987, is funding the donation of a Relief Bed mattress for every Crystal Cove mattress they sell. Vy Nguyen founder of Brentwood Home shared, “We appreciate the opportunity to give back to the communities we serve and hope to create a ripple effect by giving our customers a chance to participate.”

Brentwood Home’s support has already benefited the Union Rescue Mission of Los Angeles, who serves thousands of people struggling with homelessness. Brentwood’s significant donation of Tri-Fold Relief Beds provides new, cleanable and easy to use beds for their emergency shelter.

Bedding Industry veteran and VP of Business Development at Brentwood Home, Brian Baxter, shared his thoughts about his visit to the Union Rescue Mission. “The homeless crisis in Southern California is significant and it was very inspiring and uplifting to visit with the staff at the Union Rescue Mission to actually witness first-hand how the Relief Beds will help them provide a more restorative nights rest for their guests.”

Along with the donations to the Union Rescue Mission, Brentwood Home also partnered with Relief Bed in its support to victims of Hurricane Florence that ravaged parts of North Carolina. The significance of this donation increased once Relief Bed International agreed to get things rolling over 2,000 miles away from the impacted area. Relief Beds founder Scott Smalling was originally contacted by Texas based relief organization Reach Out America to help their efforts in North Carolina.

“This was a very rewarding project,” stated Smalling. “Five different organizations pooled their resources together to help those impacted by Hurricane Florence. Reach Out America http://www.reachoutamerica.org quarterbacked the project with the help of a grant from UPS Freight to cover the 40’ truck to carry the donated supplies from Seattle to North Carolina. To maximize the available space on the truck we reached out to World Vision http://www.worldvision.org to help with bottled water, diapers and food supplies. Lastly the partnership between Brentwood Home http://www.brentwoodhome.com and Relief Bed International http://www.reliefbed.com supplied the beds.”

Brooke Jones, Director, Special Opportunities, at Brentwood Home stated, “One of the keys to the Relief Bed program is Scott’s ability to connect us to his vast network of organizations who are consistently in need. This allows us to have a choice where our donations are directed. Further, Relief Bed arranges opportunities for our team to visit the shelters that are being benefited by our giving, which hopefully will inspire them to be more philanthropic. It truly is a 360 approach.”

Relief Bed International supports homeless shelters in the US and Canada as well as international relief organizations that assist with disaster relief projects worldwide.
