Smile File Friday: “A Friendly Store Means No More Floor”

The Families Services programs at Merrick Community Services have partnered with Slumberland Furniture to connect families to donated beds for their children.

This week, Merrick provided two families with beds for their household. After transitioning from living in an emergency shelter in Ramsey County, the families connected with Merrick Case Managers to seek out resources that could provide more stability in their home.

The picture shows two sets of DONATED twin mattresses, bed frames, as well as spring boxes so that two of the family’s children no longer had to sleep on the floor in their new home.

Also pictured are three DONATED MyPillows that the family received, courtesy of our friends at MyPillow. After hard work, the family is able to rest their head and get 40 Winks of sleep.
