Gardner-White Helps Mitch Albom Provide Mattresses to Orphanage in Haiti

On April 1st, Mitch Albom visited the Gardner-White Warehouse in Auburn Hills to pick up 50 mattresses that were donated by Sealy.

Mitch Albom is the founder of A Hole in the Roof Foundation, which operates the Have Faith Haiti Mission. He recently got a call that the orphanage had gotten bed bugs. We immediately wanted to help when we heard and partnered with Sealy to donate 50 twin mattresses and a sectional to the children in Haiti.

“As a result of today’s generosity by Gardner-White and Sealy, almost 50 Haitian orphans will be able to get a good night’s sleep, free of bed bugs, on a mattress that’s higher quality than they’ve ever probably slept on in their lives.

I was really touched by how quickly two companies answered the call; I don’t think it was more than a couple of days, and they said ‘yes,’ and when we told the kids they were all going to be getting new beds, I could hear the screaming through the phone. We’re really grateful that people here in Detroit care so much about people who are a half-a-world away. We’re going to appreciate this, literally, every night in the near future.”
