Bedding product supplier Danican has begun distributing mattress and pillow protectors to shelters in San Luis Obispo County, Calif., as part of its Danican Cares initiative.
Recently, Danican CEO Thomas Frismodt presented 25 sets of Danican Care Packages to Traci Walker, Resident Services Coordinator for Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo’s, SLO Non-Profit Housing Corp., which develops affordable rental housing throughout San Luis Obispo County.
“It is an important part of our company, and my personal mission, to support people in need” said Frismodt. “These protectors will help great organizations like HASLO to save resources and avert disastrous situations by keeping an essential part of their services — beds and pillows — from being destroyed.”
The protectors come in five-piece sets to provide total encasement of mattresses and pillows. This provides moisture protection as well as preventing bed bugs, dust mites, viruses and bacteria from inhabiting bedding.
“The Danican company is such a wonderful group of people. Their generous donation will be directly passed through by HASLO to our elderly and disabled residents, who I am confident will appreciate it,” said Scott Smith, Executive Director of HASLO.
Danican’s first donation of 50 Danican Cares packages was delivered to the El Camino Homeless Organization of Atascadero. ECHO is the homeless shelter serving all of San Luis Obispo County on California’s Central Coast.
This is the first year for the Danican Care Package Program, and the company plans to increase distribution as it grows.
“We hope to expand support of shelters throughout the Central Coast after we help the organizations in San Luis Obispo County first.” Frismodt said.
