Purple is partnering with local and national nonprofits this holiday season to provide comfort to those in need—particularly children and families in transitional housing circumstances.
This month, Purple partnered with Miry’s List, a nonprofit dedicated to welcoming refugee families into communities across the nation, to provide 3,000 twin sheet sets and 3,000 pillows that will be distributed to 12 nonprofits in 11 different states, a value of $400,245.
This particular comfort donation has immediately helped 50 families arriving from Afghanistan who have enrolled in Miry’s List in the last month, according to the company. Along with the product donation, Purple employees wrote personal “welcome letters” to be shared when families receive the items.
“This donation from Purple could not have come at a better time,” shared Miry Whitehill, the Founder of Miry’s List. “We are seeing unprecedented demand for our programming. These families come with virtually nothing and our partnership with Purple will help provide them with essential supplies to help rebuild their lives and provide a warm welcome home.”
Purple also kicked off its donation drive this month with the Precious Dreams Foundation, offering a Comfort Bag Donation option on the Purple website. Consumers online and in retail locations can purchase a Comfort Bag for $25 that includes bedtime items for kids in foster care or homeless shelters.
