Houston-based Mattress Firm, Simmons brand and Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa teamed up for an event supporting the Houston Children’s Charity program, “A Better Night’s Sleep”
During the event at Mattress Firm’s headquarters, 500 children received new bedding.
Atlanta-based Simmons donated 500 mattresses for the event, and Mattress Firm gave bed frames, sheet sets and pillows to children in attendance.
“God blessed me with talent to play the game and the good fortune to make it to the major leagues,” Correa said. “That has given me the opportunity to bring awareness to an issue that is very close to my heart. Every child deserves a good night’s sleep.”
