Furniture store donating mattresses to Clark County firehouses

Updated January 16, 2019 - 8:59 am

A furniture store plans to donate new mattresses to all 30 Clark County firehouses in the Las Vegas Valley, starting Wednesday with a station in the west valley.

Walker Furniture will deliver 10 new mattresses and foundation sets to Firehouse Station 22, 6745 W. Flamingo Road, at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday as part of its “Project Firehouse: Rested and Ready” campaign, according to a press release from the company.

The company, whose main store is in downtown Las Vegas, plans to donate new mattresses to all 30 Clark County firehouses in the valley, according to the press release.

Walker Furniture co-owner Linda Alterwitz-Mizrahi said the store partnered with the Clark County Fire Department to help firefighters fight sleep deprivation. “It’s been years” since local fire stations have received new mattresses because of cutbacks during the recession, the release said.
