Baltimore, MD - On May 23, 2019, members of the Leesa team headed to the Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training (MCVET) to donate 125 brand new mattresses and 250 pillows to veterans in Baltimore.
MCVET was created to give veterans the support they need to be able to rejoin their communities as productive citizens. As one of the largest shelters for homeless veterans in the United States, MCVET provides housing, job training, counseling, healthcare and professional services to our country’s veterans.
Leesa launched their partnership with MCVET last year on World Homeless Day.
On World Homeless Day, October 10, 2018, Leesa donated 125 beds to homeless veterans at MCVET. They were joined by Tyler Stallings, a 7-year-old from Baltimore whose Hero Bags provide homeless veterans with essential items like soap and toiletries. With the help of his mom, he's given out more than 2,000 bags.
