TORONTO – Canadian direct-to-consumer mattress brand Polysleep has donated more than $75,000 worth of mattresses to the Furniture Bank here as part of the City of Toronto’s efforts to encourage self-isolation for hundreds of vulnerable local residents needing to shelter-in-place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“On behalf of the City of Toronto, I’d like to thank Polysleep for their generous donation," Deputy Mayor Michael Thompson and chairman of the city’s economic and community development committee said in a statement. “The mattresses will help some of our city’s most vulnerable residents get comfortable, safe sleep.”

“At Polysleep, we believe every Canadian deserves both a healthy and great night’s sleep, so we are proud to join forces with the City of Toronto and Furniture Bank helping vulnerable residents in need during this hard time,” added Jeremiah Curvers, Polysleep co-founder and chief executive officer. “Because we care about each other, we admire and support the immediate initiatives and call to action from the City of Toronto, and we’re happy to help those they serve in the best way we know how."

Seen here are some of the 100 mattresses donated to Toronto’s Furniture Bank by Polysleep, the Montreal-based direct-to-consumer specialist.The Montreal-based company believes a new mattress can make a difference for people in difficult situations, making a fresh start just a little bit easier. Distributed by the Furniture Bank, local families in need will receive a Polysleep mattress, made from certified antimicrobial foam and a unique foam support frame that provides true support around the edge of the mattress.

“Partnering up with Polysleep to give the community a sense of home plays a critical role during this hard time in ensuring anyone in need to have safe and high-quality sleep,” said Furniture Bank executive director Dan Kershaw. “The Furniture Bank movement is about empowerment, and Polysleep well represents how local brands truly care about the Canadian community.”

The charitable agency said on its web site that Polysleep donated 100 mattresses to their efforts during the pandemic.

In addition to Furniture Bank, some of Polysleep’s cross-Canada charity partners include: United Way (Toronto); Pregnancy Care Center (Toronto); United Project (London, Ontario); Spirit of the Children Society (Vancouver); Joussour (Montréal); and, Racine Croisée (Montréal).

Founded in 2016, Polysleep sells high-quality, sustainable mattresses that are manufactured in Montreal. Its product assortment has expanded in recent years to include pillows, anti-microbial toppers and baby mattresses. It also has a network of about 21 independent retail stores across the country that carry its line.
