This holiday season, Slumberland Furniture is working to provide families in need with new beds through its annual Making Homes for the Holidays program.

Throughout the month of December, Slumberland Furniture as a whole will donate approximately 2,000 mattress and box spring sets to nonprofit partners throughout the communities it serves.

Slumberland Furniture in Alexandria is also participating in the program. From Dec. 15 to 18, 11 mattress sets were donated with the help of Caring and Sharing. In addition, the Alexandria Walmart provided sheet sets for all mattresses that are donated locally.

"For far too many families, a warm bed has become a luxury," said Cory Johnson, Alexandria Slumberland manager. "With Making Homes for the Holidays, Slumberland is working to ensure that everyone in our communities gets a healthy night's sleep."

The Making Homes for the Holidays program began in 1993. Since then, Slumberland has donated more than 26,000 new mattresses and box springs to deserving families.
