Quad Cities, USA: Slumberland Furniture in Davenport, Iowa, is working to provide families in need with a comfortable bed in which to sleep at night. Through its annual Making Homes for the Holidays Program, Slumberland donated 26 mattress and box spring sets to The Salvation Army Family Service Center, a facility that provides food and shelter to families that are rebuilding their lives.
