mattress and boxspring sets were recently donated to the Westgate Resorts Foundation.
These beds were previously installed in units at another timeshare company, but it was quickly determined that they did not meet the specs of the order. As a result, they were replaced and the foundation was the lucky beneficiary of the
On April 9, the mattresses were donated to thirteen local charities for use in their facility or to give to their needy clients.
Bread of Life Fellowship, Catholic Charities, Children’s Home Society, Finding the Lost Sheep Street Ministry, Habitat for Humanity of Osceola, Intervention Services, Lutheran Services, Matthew’s Hope Homeless Resource Center, Mending Hearts Charities, New Hope for Kids, Impower, Southern Affordable Services, West Orange Habitat for
Humanity and Seminole County Schools’ Families in Transition program were the recipients.
In the words of a grateful charity representative, “Thank you so much for the mattresses! We appreciate being included as one of the benefiting organizations of your kindness. The ten mattresses we received were provided to foster kids and families. Some of them were sleeping on mats on the floor, so these were greatly appreciated! Thanks to Westgate Resorts and Simmons, they will sleep a little easier from now on.”
