Mattress donation helps vulnerable New Zealanders sleep easy

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

We're so grateful to the fantastic team at Ecosa NZ who have recently donated their 1000th mattress to our Family Stores!

Their foam mattresses come with a 100-day trial and money back guarantee, so if customers find the mattress isn't what they like, they can send it back to Ecosa and Ecosa donates them to us. The mattress sales raise funds for our much-needed services in each community and give Family Store customers the opportunity to purchase a near new, high-quality mattress at a significantly discounted price.

What do you think? Should prisoners be allowed to vote in the council elections? Read more here
