Living Spaces recently announced that they donated mattresses in partnership with AMVETS National Service Foundation as part of its Welcome Home program in an effort to aid veterans. Twenty volunteers from various Living Spaces stores and their corporate office unloaded a delivery of over 200 mattresses for the veterans that AMVETS serves. This event took place at the Team Amvets Thrift Store in Long Beach, CA.

The mattresses were designated for delivery to various cities all across California such as San Diego County, Orange County, Long Beach, the Greater Los Angeles County and Fresno. This donation ensures that quality mattresses will be delivered to veterans to improve their health by giving them better sleep.

“I am grateful to have something more comfortable than the floor to sleep on, “ says Jaycee Kuykendoll, a five-year member of the US Coast Guard. “I am a single mom without much assistance from family and friends, so having my own furniture to make my apartment feel like a home is beyond helpful for my little family.”

AMVETS Executive Director, Karina Guzman states, “The Welcome Home Program is a program that assists veterans who are transitioning from being homeless to permanent housing. We provide the basic furniture for their home.”

 

 

 

Through the Welcome Home Program, AMVETS gathers and donates beds, pillows, bedsheets, nightstands, dressers, couches, coffee tables, dining room tables and chairs, refrigerators, pots and pans and special request items such as towels and rugs. AMVETS estimates that they do about 60 veteran deliveries per month. For the program to date, they’ve done over 4,000 deliveries.

“Many people are fighting battles that we know nothing about. And these are true heroes who served our country. Now they’re home and they’re in need. So to be able to give them a good night’s sleep is something little, it seems. But for them, it might be more than we even know,” says Julian Ervin, Living Spaces General Manager.
