PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse now have more places to sleep at night.

On Tuesday, Bedmart gave over 100 Tempur-Pedic twin mattresses, worth over $146,000,  to local social service agencies, including Community Warehouse.

Bedmart representatives said that Community Warehouse was a perfect partner to process the donations.

"We have 100 people in my company that are really dedicated to helping people find a better night's sleep, said CEO Steven Stone. "There are people that can't afford it. And this is our way to do something to help people who at a time in life need a good place to sleep. This is something we can do."

Community Warehouse is a nonprofit organization that distributes furniture and household goods to hundreds of local families every year.

The mattresses came with mattress protectors to make sure everything is clean and comfortable.

Beds also went to Casa Hogar, Bradely Angle, and the West Women's Shelter.
