The 5,000-bed milestone was reached Sept. 20 with Tempur-Pedic’s delivery to a 30-bedroom Ronald McDonald House in Austin, Texas.
Tempur-Pedic began outfitting Ronald McDonald Houses with beds in 2009, a move inspired by Tempur-Pedic employees who had begun volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House in Lexington.
C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc., a logistics and transportation provider, has handled distribution and delivery of the beds since 2009, providing its services at no cost.
“Tempur-Pedic’s mission is to help people get their best night’s sleep every night, and we know this is particularly valuable for the parents and caregivers staying at a Ronald McDonald House,” said Mark Sarvary, Tempur-Pedic chief executive officer. “We’re thankful to be helping families stay together, rest together and support each other in a great time of need.”
