Today we had the wonderful opportunity to donate brand new Tempur-Pedic mattresses to Albertina Kerr, a Portland non-profit that provides mental health treatment for youth, support for adults with developmental disabilities and more. With the support of Tempur-Pedic and GBS Enterprises, BedMart was able to donate 128 Tempur-Pedic mattresses and GBS mattress protectors to the cause. This $128,000 mattress donation will provide Albertina Kerr’s 47 group homes with brand new beds for their residents.
This morning marked the third donation event that BedMart has hosted for Albertina Kerr. We had the pleasure of hearing from Jeff Carr, Albertina Kerr CEO, about the wonderful work the organization does and the impact the work has on Albertina’s residents, youth in particular. A youth resident of Albertina Kerr also spoke about his own experience with Albertina and the great impact the mattress donation will have. Steven Stone, BedMart founder, closed the ceremony with a speech that highlighted the company’s enthusiasm for giving back to the community and the importance of organizations like Albertina Kerr. A complimentary breakfast bar was available for all, with highlights such as VooDoo Donuts and hot coffee, followed by the loading of 128 mattresses into transfer trucks!
We are so fortunate to be included in this community and have the opportunity to give back to our neighbors. Albertina Kerr is a wonderful organization that positively impacts many lives and we are thrilled to be able to support their efforts in the best way we can: provide better sleep!
