Last week we were contacted by a mattress company asking if they could donate a 2-month-old king sized mattress (cost $1500 new). Their client ended up wanting something different than what they had originally bought so the company replaced it for them.
The company has a policy of donating returned mattresses and since their client lives in Newberg, we were the first organization they called.
The day they called happened to have been our last night of spring term of Relational Ministry classes so we announced that this mattress may be available. A married couple attending that class mentioned that they were in need of a new mattress.
So on Monday we called the company, they put us in touch with their client, then we contacted one of our volunteers who agreed to pick it up and deliver it.
This almost-new, excellent quality mattress will arrive at our client’s home tomorrow evening!
