In an effort to support vulnerable communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Sleep Country has donated $1.5 million worth of product—including mattresses, beds, and sleep essentials—to vulnerable communities and frontline medical workers across Canada.
The first recipient of the donation is the City of Toronto's the City's Rapid Housing Access Initiative that will provide the Toronto Community Housing shelter with 100 beds including mattresses, adjustable bases, bed frames, sheets, protectors and pillows to assist in providing residents with a safe and healthy living arrangement.
"I want to thank Sleep Country for their commitment to donate $150,000 worth of mattresses and bedding essentials to Toronto communities that are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The support of private partners like Sleep Country have helped our City in our efforts to respond to this virus. These 100 new beds for Toronto Community Housing will help create a more comfortable environment for vulnerable tenants and ensure that we are supporting our residents through these challenging times." – Mayor John Tory, City of Toronto
Sleep Country plans to continue support organizations across Canada who support at-risk residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.
