Sleep Number donated more than 30 mattresses to individuals residing in New York City’s Housing Authority (NYCHA), including many children who have been dealing with the fallout of staying indoors to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The bedding company also made the donation through its rewards’ members to assist some of the 131,000+ residents in the NYCHA, which is the largest public housing authority in North America.

The donation was made possible with the help of Public Housing Communities Inc., which works with a network of local resident association presidents to coordinate economic development, job readiness, and educational programs. Based in Brooklyn, the organization has administered educational and career training programs for the past 15 years to more than 10,000 NYCHA residents.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Public Housing Communities has shifted its focus to food and product distributions.

“I’ve been a lifelong Brooklynite, and I’ve never seen my community go through anything like what COVID-19 brought us,” says Charlene Nimmons, founder and chief executive officer of Public Housing Communities. “Thank you so much Sleep Number and Good360 for this extremely generous donation. Some of our neighbors have been stuck inside for three months and this gesture absolutely lifted their spirits. Thank you for remembering us in our time of need.”
