Giving a Good Night’s Sleep on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Giving a Good Night’s Sleep on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Pastor Daniel Stevenson

The Life Station NWOBA held a Martin Luther King Jr. Day Mattress give away. Ninty-seven brand new in the box high quality gel memory foam mattresses were given away one per household. Families with members formerly sleeping on the floor, on air mattresses, or on mattresses decades old were blessed to receive the mattresses. This event was the second of its kind after a similar delivery was made back in November. 

Clients rallied together to find a way to transport the mattresses home strapping them to the tops of cars, cramming them into cars and mini-vans, and in many cases carrying them by hand. Sixty-nine families were also helped with emergency food and toiletries on Monday, January 16th. God also provided the fruit with sixteen first time decisions for Christ. Sixteen brand new Christians! 

The mattresses were donated by a community partner in Mississippi and transported to Toledo by Dwayne and Sam, two faithful members of Belden Baptist church in Mississippi. The other supplies were donated by individuals, churches, businesses, and the Toledo Seagate food bank. The Life Station is a 501- C3 non-profit dedicated to overcoming evil with good in Toledo. Director Pastor Daniel Stevenson was quoted as saying, "If it were not for the generosity of all involved the event would not have been possible. It is proof positive that when people set aside their differences they can make a meaningful difference in the lives of their neighbors."
