Rest-test a mattress and Morris Furniture will make a donation

Morris Furniture is making a donation to a local charity group every time a customer tests a mattress at a company store in November.

Morris Furniture is celebrating its 72nd anniversary this year by asking customers to test a mattress in November. The Dayton, Ohio, store will make a donation to a local charity for every customer who tests a mattress this month.

Even if customers don’t buy a mattress after a test at the company’s Ashley HomeStore and Morris Home stores, the HFA member will still donate to Secret Smiles, a local organization that gives mattresses to families in need.

“We are focused on donating more beds to kids,” said Larry Klaben, Morris Furniture president and CEO. “The test rest gives participants a chance to see the newest in a sleep technology while helping Secret Smiles provide more beds” to kids in need.

Aid to tornado victims, too

Through the partnership, Secret Smiles has been able to contribute more than 7,500 beds to families in need, said Tracy Janess, president of Secret Smiles of Dayton.

Most recently, the charity donated 150 beds and 50 cribs to families devastated by a series of tornadoes on Memorial Day, Janess said.

“Morris Furniture’s outstanding community efforts, from the corporate staff to the delivery truck drivers, reinforce the difference we are making in our world by starting with a basic tenet — that every child can have a bed and then hope to grow up to make a difference themselves,” she said.

Morris Furniture Co. first started in Dayton in 1947 and now has showrooms across Dayton, Columbus, Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

In all of its markets, the company makes a donation for every mattress purchased in the Better SleepShops year-round.
