Malouf Foundation™ Donates Product for Disaster Relief in Ukraine
LOGAN, Utah—Malouf Home™ and the Malouf Foundation™ coordinated a donation of more than 18,000 mattresses to disaster relief, many of which will be distributed to displaced persons in Ukraine due to the Russo-Ukrainian war.
Kacie Malouf, co-founder of Malouf™ and board chair of the Malouf Foundation™, said, "We hope a new mattress brings a moment of comfort to those who have endured unimaginable disasters. As a furniture and bedding company, we are uniquely positioned to provide essential products to those that need them, and we remain committed to using our business to support others.”
Nearly 8 million Ukrainian refugees have been reported across Europe, and continued war in the country has created dangerous living conditions for those displaced persons who remain. Malouf worked with Utah-based August Mission and nonprofit logistics specialists Global Empowerment Mission (GEM) to distribute and move mattresses into disaster areas. August Mission helps target zones of critical need, and GEM excels in distributing aid in high-conflict locations.
Sage Hancock, director of impact for the Malouf Foundation, said, "We have been working with several organizations to provide support for those affected by war and natural disasters. By providing supplies to vulnerable populations, we can help address some of the root causes of sexual exploitation, like instability and resource shortages.”
Malouf™ not only provided mattresses to Ukraine, but also for ongoing disaster relief efforts. In addition to Ukraine, mattresses have been donated domestically to victims of the California floods, Kentucky earthquake, and Hurricane Ian. Malouf™ is also currently coordinating a bedding donation to earthquake victims in Turkey.
