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 mattresses and box spring sets to nonprofit partners throughout the communities it serves.

Slumberland Furniture in Alexandria is proud to a part of this program. During the week of December 17, eight mattress sets will be donated with the help of Caring and Sharing. In addition, the Alexandria Wal-Mart is providing sheet sets for all mattresses that are donated locally.

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

The Making Homes for the Holidays program began in 1993. Since then, Slumberland has donated more than 20,000 new mattresses and box springs to deserving families.
