Mattress Sale Liquidators, one of the most well-known mattress stores in Orange County is working with the Giving Children Hope organization on The Sherman Project. In particular, the company’s Fountain Valley branch is in cooperation with the non-profit to bring mattresses to the Sherman Indian High School in Riverside where over 400 Native American students live and learn at the Sherman boarding school.
The Sherman Project aims to help the students, many of whom are foster children rescued from the plight of their reservations, by providing a safe environment for them. Teens under the care of the boarding school’s staff get quality education along with food and shelter. Conditions in the dormitories, however, are not that ideal as most children are only given plastic mattresses and a few articles of clothing. Still, the students are reluctant to return to their homes for the lack of food and shelter awaiting them once they get there.
