We use this resource to purchase mattresses for families when we do not have enough donated mattresses. We can use money from their transitional grant, or volunteer groups can offer to purchase mattresses as a donation. MCC Refugee Services takes the lead on arranging mattresses for families. If you want to be involved, please let us know first.
