This Christmas 30 needy families in Rockford will have a place to lay there head, all thanks to a local business donation of mattresses.

Slumberland, as reported by WIFR"will donate nearly 1,000 new mattresses and box springs throughout the Midwest." 30 of which will be going to families here in Rockford.

The mattress donation may not be the first that comes to mind when thinking of those less fortunate during the holidays, but none the less a good bed to sleep in is just as important.

Slumberland has donated over 300,000 mattresses and box springs to families since 1993. That's when their program "Making Homes for the Holidays" began.

That's really neat. There's nothing better than having a good night's sleep on a bed that you can call your own.
