Local retailer to make $100K mattress donation to Maui Fire Department
BedMart will donate 80 new Tempur-Pedic brand mattresses valued at over $100,000 to the Maui County Fire Department’s firefighters in a special ceremony on Aug. 5.
Maui County Fire Chief, Bradford Ventura, and Deputy Fire Chief, Gavin Fujioka will be on-hand to accept the donation from BedMart’s president Steven Stone, and Elana Stone the company’s advertising spokesperson and Vice President of Marketing.
