iMS gives the gift of sleep

WINFIELD, W.Va. – Innovative Mattress Solutions (IMS), parent company of mattress retailers Mattress WarehouseSleep Outfitters and Mattress King, plans to donate 30 new mattress sets to six different charities based on Facebook voting.

IMS has dubbed the campaign the Gift of Sleep. The company asked its 30 mattress winners from this year’s 30th anniversary Sleep Stakes celebration to nominate local charities in need of mattresses.

Earlier this year, to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary, IMS gave away a queen mattress set each week for 30 weeks. People registered each week on Facebook and the weekly winner was selected by random drawing. IMS asked those winners to nominate local charities to receive another 30 mattresses.

IMS owner Kim Knopf said, “This year we gave away 30 new mattresses to celebrate our company’s 30th anniversary. Now we’ve asked our 30 winners to nominate charities in their hometowns. The top six vote-getting charities will receive five mattresses each.”

Fifteen of IMS’s 30 winners answered the call and nominated local charities in the winners’ communities.

Facebook voting began midnight Dec. 13 and runs through Dec. 24. Each of the top six vote-getting charities will receive five new mattresses each from IMS.

The nominated charities are: Salvation Army, Cleveland, Oh.; Faith House, Lorain, Oh.; AMVETS Post 99, Vandalia, Oh.; Faith Mission, Columbus, Oh.; St. Paul de Vincent Society, Marietta, Oh.; Bethany House, Cincinnati, Oh.; Latrobe Street Mission, Parkersburg, W.Va.; Union Mission, Charleston, W.Va.; Brian’s Safehouse, Prosperity, W.Va.; Chrysalis House, Lexington, Ky.; Hope Center, Lexington, Ky.; Home of the Innocents, Louisville, Ky.; Portland Cares, Portland, Tenn.; Hope Place, Huntsville, Ala.; and Cullman Caring for Kids, Cullman, Ala. 

Innovative Mattress Solutions is headquartered in Winfield, W.Va. It does business as Mattress Warehouse, Sleep Outfitters and Mattress King in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and Alabama. The company features pillows, mattress protectors and adjustable bases, as well as mattress sets from Sealy, Stearns & Foster, Tempur-Pedic, Dormeo Octaspring, and its own private label mattress line, uDream.
