Tempur Sealy, which is headquartered in Lexington, is giving $1 million in Tempur-Pedic and Sealy mattresses to those in southeast Texas displaced by Hurricane Harvey.
The company also will be working with retail partners in the region to provide additional community assistance in the coming months. Since 2011, Tempur Sealy has donated more than 150,000 beds to charity, with a focus on disaster relief, family and children’s charities, first responders and military organizations.
Tempur Sealy will work with its long-time disaster recovery partner, Good360, which coordinates directly with local recovery agencies to meet the needs of families impacted by disasters.
“Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone in the region whose lives have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said Scott Thompson, Tempur Sealy chairman and CEO. “We know that the top priority right now is ensuring the safety of those affected by the hurricane. But in the coming months, the hard work of rebuilding lives, homes and the community will begin and will go on for years. We want the people of the region to know that we are committed to helping them rebuild.”
In the past, Tempur Sealy and Good360 have been provided mattresses for thousands of families in Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and other areas impacted by natural disasters.
