Faith in the Future: Seattle Union Gospel Mission

Leesa donates 293 mattresses to the historic West Coast shelter.

We’re continually inspired by the uplifting work our giving partners do. It’s a reminder that the world is full of heartache, yes, but it’s also a place where strangers devote their lives to healing that heartache.

A few weeks back, Leesa had the opportunity to donate 293 brand-new mattresses to the Seattle Union Gospel Mission, which provides emergency and long-term shelter to the hurting and homeless of Seattle

Our Head of Social Impact, Sophie Wolfe, coordinates Leesa mattress donations through our Leesa One-Ten initiative and traveled to the West Coast to represent Leesa. The Mission’s team shot these stunning photos.

In its 82-year history, the faith-based Seattle Union Gospel Mission has helped thousands of people transition to stable, secure housing and rise out of poverty.

What began as a program to aid people during the Great Depression continues today, with around 1,500 people attending at least one of the daily free meals the Mission serves.

Dana, pictured above, explained how the Mission changed her life. “I was completely broken. I didn’t have my loved ones, I didn’t have a roof over my head, and I was caught up in addiction. I’ve gone through my fair share of horrible nights, and to be able to sleep comfortably and safely – it’s just a world of difference.” Now, Dana says she has “a year clean and nothing but hope for the future.”

Michael is also a guest at the Mission. He described the importance of having a safe, comfortable place to sleep. “A good night’s sleep means everything. It can totally change how your day goes.”

Through our One-Ten program, Leesa donates one mattress to shelters and non-profits across the country for every 10 sold.
