St. Vincent DePaul District of Marinette recently received grant funding to provide mattresses for those in the surrounding communities who cannot afford one. St. Vincent DePaul Executive Director, Ashley McKinnon says, “seeing how many friends in need had poor mattress situations made us think we had to do more.”

McKinnon says, “we recently received a five-thousand-dollar grant from the M and M Area Community Foundation to help cover one-hundred percent of the mattresses for those in need.”

Mattresses are available for individuals living in Menominee, Marinette, and Oconto County. Those interested in learning more about St. Vincent DePaul’s free mattress program can contact the local helpline which can be found at SVDPMARINETTE.COM/HELPLINES
