Yankee Mattress Factory, the manufacturer of handcrafted mattresses locally in its Agawam, MA factory, with showrooms in Agawam, Springfield, Northampton, and Greenfield, is raising money to benefit the American Cancer Society now through October 31. In the past three years, the wives of two employee-owners were diagnosed with breast cancer. Both women are now in remission and in their honor, Yankee Mattress Factory has set a goal to raise $10,000 for cancer research and support for patients going through treatment in the Western Mass region. .
“Watching these two families deal with this scary diagnosis was difficult for all our employee-owners,” said Adam Miller, President of Yankee Mattress Factory. “We are so grateful both women are in recovery and wanted to do something as a member of this community to help others on the same journey. We hope our customers will join us in our mission to raise as much as possible to donate to this great organization.”
Through October 31, Yankee Mattress Factory will donate $25 for every Silver Collection mattress and $50 for every Gold or Black Collection mattress purchased at its four stores. They are also accepting donations from customers; anyone who donates $20 or more will be entered into a raffle to win one of 10 Malpaca Queen Pillows valued at $240 each.
A team from Yankee Mattress Factory will also participate in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Sunday, October 16, in Hartford, Conn. Stores will be closed that day to allow all employee-owners and their families to participate. To learn more about the event, please visit any one of our locations or read more about this event here.
