SEATTLE (PRWEB) May 22, 2020
Relief Bed International announces its continued collaboration with Serta Simmons Bedding (SSB) to donate more than 12,000 pillows to major U.S. relief organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic. These donations follow the two organizations’ earlier collaboration to donate Serta Relief Beds to hospitals and other medical facilities across the country.
Facilitated by Relief Bed International, Serta Simmons Bedding suppliers, including GBS Enterprises/Healthy Sleep, Softex and Hollander Sleep Products, generously donated the pillows for distribution to hospitals, veteran homes, homeless shelters and other relief organizations across the country.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to help these critically important relief organizations with pillow donations and could not have done it without the generous support of our supply partners,” said Melanie Huet, Chief Marketing Officer for Serta Simmons Bedding. “We are grateful to Relief Bed International for helping connect us with these deserving charities.”
The donations were purposefully focused on some of the hardest hit areas in the U.S. and benefitted organizations like The Bowery Mission, who serves the homeless and hungry in the heart of New York City, The Union Rescue Mission, one of the largest missions in the country located in downtown Los Angeles, and World Vision, a humanitarian organization focused on both domestic and international relief efforts.
“Homeless shelters are some of the hardest hit organizations in the country due to the close proximity of their guests and vulnerable health conditions,” said Scott Smalling, founder of Relief Bed International. “Shelters were forced to significantly expand their operations to comply with distancing regulations which puts a further strain on their limited resources. This valuable collaboration between Relief Bed International and Serta Simmons Bedding is an enormous boost to their efforts.”
