MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – Nearly 50 kids in the Madison Metropolitan School District will receive a new mattress to sleep on this holiday season.

The donation to 47 students is part of a University Hill Farms, 40 Winks and Home for the Holidays neighborhood effort.

40 Winks is a Slumberland Furniture foundation that works with local charities year round to donate mattresses to children who don’t have them.

Both Slumberland locations in Madison have donated the mattresses as part of their home for the holiday event, which is in its 30th year.

“This year alone, vacation homes are donating 2,500 company-wide mattresses to local Midwestern communities,” the company said. “It’s wonderful to help out in small amounts by loading these mattresses and knowing the difference they will make for the families who receive them. “

Among the 120 Slumberland stores in the Midwest, the company will reach 50,000 donated mattresses this year.
