A local women's shelter got a big donation from Mattress Firm Tuesday: 17 new mattresses for its residents.
More than a dozen volunteers took out some of the old, worn mattresses, then delivered -- and set up -- the new ones in less than an hour. The volunteers also assisted with other projects at the shelter, which has a multi-lingual staff, 24-hour crisis line, and a number of support services including legal advocacy, child care, job training and placement, and parenting skills training.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
