Bedding Mart to donate 100 mattresses to needy children in Arkansas  

LITTLE ROCK – Every resident of the Arkansas Baptist Children’s Homes and Family Ministries  (ABCHomes) will be receiving a new mattress April 24-26, thanks to Arkansas’ largest mattress dealer. 

Bedding Mart  is teaming up with Tempur-Pedic North America to provide 100 new mattresses for each resident of ABCHomes’ seven statewide locations. They will also be providing mattress protectors and pillows.

According to a news release by Bedding Mart president Brad Jordan, the company feels they owe a debt of gratitude to the community, who has made their existence possible. “We have been blessed by all the wonderful people of Arkansas. We wanted to do something that would have a profound impact on the great communities across the state and nothing can impact a person’s life more than good sleep. This is especially true for children who may feel alone or afraid and helpless. We aim to give them hope by helping to provide the strength and energy needed to chase their dreams,” noted Jordan.

ABCHomes locations receiving the mattresses include: Promise House Maternity Home of Little Rock and the Arkansas Baptist Home for Children in Monticello, April 25; the ABCHomes emergency homes in Judsonia and Paragould and the Family Care Home of Jonesboro, April 26; and the Arkansas Boys Ranch in Harrison and the Tommy Jones Emergency Home in West Fork, April 26. 

“We are very grateful for the generous donation from Bedding Mart and Tempur-Pedic North America,” noted Stella Prather, ABCHomes communications director. “It is because of wonderful donors such as these that ABCHomes can continue to care for many children and teens in crisis.”
