Shifman, a leading manufacturer of luxury, handmade mattresses for over 120 years, reported that it decided to give back to the High Point community by donating thousands of dollars in bedding to Seven Homes Foster Care & Adoption Agency. Seven Homes is a charitable child-placing agency whose mission is to improve the lives of children by providing the highest-quality care. Shifman was able to donate mattresses, box springs and frames in the names of their invited targeted accounts, as well as one randomly selected existing Shifman dealer, who visited their showroom at High Point Market. Seven Homes will use this bedding to create a more comforting environment for displaced children.
“Seven Homes Charity is a fantastic charity,” said Bill Hammer, President of Shifman Mattress Company. “We’ve had tremendous opportunities here in High Point and decided that we wanted to give back to the community.”
The charity has received thousands of dollars worth of Shifman bedding. The new bedding will allow the charity to expand its reach and take in more children. “You have a child that is sleeping on the floor, or sleeping five in a bed, or on a sofa, and by Shifman donating the mattress, then it stays with that child. So if the child goes back to their home, then they are able to take that mattress and boxspring with them” said Donna Causey, the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Seven Homes Foster Care and Adoption Agency.
The experience has been extremely rewarding for the Newark based company and all of its employees. “There’s nothing more heart-warming than seeing a child benefit from our products,” noted Wayne Pezzino, Shifman Mattress Company’s National Sales Manager. “We specifically chose this charity out of hundreds because we believe in Seven Homes’ mission and know the children will benefit greatly from our donation.”
