United Way Donates 150 Mattresses to Westhab Housing Program

White Plains, NY (June 23, 2020) – United Way of Westchester and Putnam has donated $150,000 worth of  Tempur-pedic twin mattresses to Westhab to help its transitional housing program in Yonkers.

The donation came through United Way’s Gifts-in-Kind program which partners with Goods 360 to provide essential goods to individuals and families in need through the nonprofits that serve them.

Rich Nightingale, President and CEO of Westhab Inc., said that the mattresses would go to help families moving into permanent housing.

“It’s donations like these that fuel our efforts and keep us building communities and saving lives,’’ said Nightingale. “United Way, thank you for your incredible partnership.’’

Tom Gabriel, President and CEO of the United Way of Westchester and Putnam, said that in the past year, United Way has provided $2 million of donations through the Gifts-in-Kind program, which helps to funnel millions in corporate and other donations to the public through its not-for-profit partnerships.

“We are grateful for our partnership with Goods 360 which allows us to provide new clothing, furniture, and other essential goods to people in our community who are in need,’’ said Gabriel. “It’s partnerships like these that help us to fulfill our mission to lift up people in crisis to self-sufficiency.’’
