BedMart Mattress Superstores, in partnership with Tempur-Pedic, recently delivered 50 Tempur-Pedic mattresses to Maui Family Support Services Inc.

KAHULUI – Maui Family Support Services Inc. received a donation of 50 Tempur-Pedic mattresses for program participants on Wednesday, June 30.

The beds worth approximately $85,000 were donated by BedMart Mattress Superstores in partnership with Tempur-Pedic.

“Maui Family Support Services is excited to partner with BedMart in meeting the needs of the families we serve. Many families cannot afford a new bed for themselves or their children and often sleep on worn out second-hand beds, futons or on the floor. This donation helps to alleviate some of the needs and stressors that our families face,” said Daphne Ladia, director of operations.

Maui Family Support Services is a private, nonprofit agency incorporated in 1980 to provide early childhood development services to families on Maui.

The agency has provided 34 years of continuous service to residents of Maui County.

MFSS’ mission is: “to promote healthy family functioning by providing supportive services that build on family strengths utilizing our collective resources toward the prevention of child abuse and neglect.”

The agency serves the islands of Maui, Lanai and Molokai. For more information, visit www.mfss.org.
