Article Summary: The donation, worth over $25,000, will replace Nazareth Housing’s current shelter beds and some will be distributed to qualifying, low-income families and seniors.




Long’s Bedding & Interiors, celebrating 101 years of service to New York City residents, announced that it is giving back to the community by donating 21 new mattresses and 21 new box frames to Nazareth Housing, a New York City non-profit tasked with preventing and ending homelessness. The donation, worth over $25,000, will replace Nazareth Housing’s current shelter beds and some will be distributed to qualifying, low-income families and seniors free of charge through the Nazareth Housing Furniture Donation Service. Nazareth Housing provides emergency family shelter, supportive permanent housing and homelessness prevention services for low-income or homeless families and seniors.

“Sleep is an essential part of the happiness and well being of a family,” said President/Owner Bob Long. “We are excited to be able to partner with Nazareth Housing to help these homeless mothers and children and upgrade their current sleep conditions with top-of-the-line mattresses.”

“Single moms have an incredibly hard job, and they do this job – each day – alone,” continued Co-Owner Terri Long. “We hope these mattresses will provide them and their children with a comfortable night’s rest at the end of the day.”

“For nearly 30 years Nazareth Housing has assisted thousands of poor and struggling households across New York City,” said Executive Director of Nazareth Housing, Michael Callaghan. “Long's Bedding’s generous donation of high quality mattresses will meet the immediate pressing needs of the neediest in our community. We are grateful for their partnership with our Furniture Donation Service.”

From John Lennon, Mick Jagger, and John Kennedy to Jerry Seinfeld and Matt Lauer, Long’s Bedding & Interiors has been a mainstay for New Yorker’s searching for a good night’s sleep in the city that never sleeps. A family business, now in its fourth generation of leadership, Long’s remains committed to investing in the community where it does business.

In addition to the mattress donation, Caber Sure Fit has donated 15 mattress protectors from their DreamSerene collection. The protection supplier’s mattress and pillow encasements guard against wear and tear, allergens and bedbugs.
