Early in 2012, Christine and Chris Cook of Sleep Experts visited Saint Louise House to share their excitement in expanding their mattress company to the Austin area. They started in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area with a strong commitment to giving back to the community. Christine launched the Share the Gift of Sleep program with a mission to help families in need, by recycling and donating customers’ old mattresses to organizations that provide shelter for women and children struggling with domestic violence, child abuse, homelessness, or illness.
Chris and Christine were committed to bringing the Share the Gift of Sleep program to Austin. After visiting Saint Louise House and familiarizing themselves with the work and mission of the organization, they invited us to become one of five Austin organizations to benefit from the program. Since they arrived in Austin this summer, Saint Louise has received more than 20 refurbished twin beds for new families moving in. What an impact they’ve made!
As the holiday season begins, Saint Louise House is delighted Sleep Experts is partnering with Girl Scouts and launching their first “Share the Warmth” donation drive in Austin. From October 29 through November 22 (Thanksgiving Day), Sleep Experts is inviting the community to drop off new and gently used blankets at one of their seven locations. Extra blankets for Saint Louise House families means cozier winter nights and lower utility costs! Make sure to pick up an extra blanket or check your closets for gently used ones and “Share the Warmth” with Saint Louise House families this fall!
Sleep Experts has delivered more than 20 twin beds to Saint Louise House through their Share the Gift of Sleep program.
