BedMart Mattress Superstores, in partnership with Tempur-Pedic, donated 50 mattresses, worth approximately $85,000, to Maui Family Support Services Inc. for its program participants at the end of June.

“Maui Family Support Services is excited to partner with BedMart in meeting the needs of the families we serve,” said Daphne Ladia, director of operations. “Many families cannot afford a new bed for themselves or their children and often sleep on worn out second-hand beds, futons or on the floor. This donation helps to alleviate some of the needs and stressors that our families face.”
