Gill Brothers Furniture Donates Over $30,000 In Mattresses to A Better Way

Furniture World News


Gill Brothers Furniture reported that it gave the women of Munice an early Christmas gift this year – a mattress. Gill Brothers Furniture donated 20 percent of their profits to A Better Way of Munice, Ind. A Better Way provides shelter and services for victims of domestic violence.

“This has been so exciting,” said Christina Kelley, of A Better Way. “It’s definitely been a unique way to experience Christmas this year. To know that there are companies who care so much about our agency and the women we serve that they would do this…is says something about Gill Brothers and everyone else who helps us.”

In years past, Gill Brothers Furniture has donated 10 to 15 percent of their profits to local social service agencies. But this year they decided to do something different. When they noticed that they still had mattresses left over from last year, instead of throwing them out they decided to donate them to A Better Way.

“It feels good (to do this),” said Steve Gill. “We knew A Better Way would get these items to people who really need them. And they have.”

Kelley explained that some of the woman who received a mattress had been sleeping on beds with stains on them, mattresses with holes or slashes covered with tape. Now, these women will spend Christmas sleeping safely on a new, comfy mattress.
