Local Ministry Gets Large Mattress Donation

Lynchburg, VA - It's a huge donation for a local ministry.

Tuesday morning, we were there as Grand Home Furnishings dropped off a truckload of mattresses to Hyland Heights Baptist Church. The 140 Tempur-Pedic brand mattresses will be used by the Take My Hand Ministries.

Take My Hand helps families in need with everything from home furnishings to help with utility bills.

"When Grand stepped forward and arraigned this with Tempur-Pedic it was just an amazing situation because I have people, clients sleeping on the floor. Little kids who don't have any mattresses or beds at all. So this has been just an absolute blessing," said Bill James, director of Take My Hand Ministries.

Grand says it chose the church's ministry because of the valuable work the church has done in the area.
