This week we had the wonderful opportunity to donate brand new Tempur-Pedic mattresses to Helping Hands Hawaii, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing families, communities and individuals with essential human and material resources. With the support of Tempur-Pedic and GBS Enterprises, BedMart was able to donate 70 Tempur-Pedic mattresses and GBS mattress protectors to the cause. This $70,000 mattress donation will benefit many vulnerable communities and families on Oahu.
Tuesday, April 4th marked the first donation event that BedMart has hosted for Helping Hands Hawaii. We had the pleasure of hearing from Jan Harada, Helping Hands Hawaii President and CEO, about the wonderful work the organization does and the impact that the mattress donation will have on the HHH clients. Tempur-Sealy also recognized BedMart with the 2017 award for “ongoing support and service to the community”. 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 Helping Hands Hawaii.
A complimentary breakfast bar was available for all, with highlights such as pupus and hot coffee, followed by the loading of 70 mattresses into transfer trucks!
We are so fortunate to be included in this community and have the opportunity to give back to our neighbors. Helping Hands Hawaii 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!
