URGENT NEED – Twin Mattresses

 

Imagine not having a bed for your child to sleep in…without a proper night’s sleep, it’s hard for children to concentrate, making success at school difficult. Twin mattresses, box springs, and metal bed frames are one of the most common furniture requests we receive. But right now, we have a critical shortage. We have ZERO twin mattresses currently. That’s right – ZERO. Not being able to provide a child a place to rest her head breaks our heart. If you have a twin mattress you are no longer using, please consider donating it to FurniShare.

Mattresses in gently used condition (clean, no rips or tears, from a pet-free, smoke-free home) may be dropped off at our FurniShare location (7890 Market Boulevard, Chanhassen) anytime Wednesday – Friday, 10 am – 4 pm, or Saturday 9 am – noon.

“Let him sleep, for when he wakes, he will move mountains.”
