Gardena, Calif.-based sleep shop chain Sit ‘n Sleep teamed with specialty sleep manufacturer Tempur-Pedic North America LLC, a subsidiary of Tempur Sealy International with headquarters in Lexington, Ky., to distribute new Tempur-Pedic mattresses to firehouses in metropolitan Los Angeles. Deliveries were made Oct. 6-12, during Fire Prevention Week. Five fire stations in Costa Mesa, Montecito, Rancho Mirage, Redlands and West Hollywood each received from 10 to 60 new mattresses.
“Our goal is to provide customers with great mattresses for a good night’s sleep and we are pleased to extend that promise to our local firefighters,” said Larry Miller, Sit ‘n Sleep chief executive officer. “There’s no better time to make this donation than during National Fire Prevention Week when firefighters aim to make their communities aware of fire safety. We’re glad to be able to help raise awareness and honor the men and women who protect our safety every day.”
