Shifman Mattress Co., a manufacturer of premium, handmade mattresses based in Newark, N.J., has donated thousands of dollars in bedding to Seven Homes Foster Care & Adoption Agency in High Point, N.C. Seven Homes is a charitable organization focused on foster care, as well as placing children in forever homes. Shifman donated mattresses, box springs and bed frames in the names of many of its dealers. The agency is using the mattress sets to create a more comforting environment for the displaced, sometimes disabled, children in its care and in some cases is sending the bedding home with the child when they return to their home or are adopted.
“Seven Homes is a fantastic charity,” said Bill Hammer, Shifman president. “We’ve had tremendous opportunities here in High Point and decided that we wanted to give back to the community.”
