CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Tempur-Pedic and Ashley Furniture teamed up to donate 140 mattresses to Beds For Kids and two Charlotte area shelters on Thursday.
The crew helping with the delivery of the beds knows exactly how important it is for a child to get a good night's sleep.
"Oftentimes when we walk into houses we see the piles of clothes, the pillow or blanket that signifies where the child slept last night and to know that they left with a new bed, with new sheets, a pillow (is great), said Daniel Fogarty with Beds for Kids. “There's a different outlook on life for those children going forward."
Beds for Kids is a non-profit organization that provides essential furniture to families in need. Organizers say there are more than 7,000 children in the Charlotte region who do not have a bed to sleep in each night.
