Knoxville-based mattress manufacturer MLILY USA has donated 200 mattresses in Chattanooga and Northern Georgia to help residents affected by the Eastern Sunday tornadoes.

The company partnered with the J.A. Henry Community YMCA in Chattanooga for the donation. The YMCA, which provides bedding and other products to those in need, will distribute the MLILY mattresses to people the storm impacted.

Seven tornadoes in Chattanooga and Northern Georgia left three people dead and destroyed more than 340 homes in Hamilton County om Easter Sunday. The storms also damaged 150 commercial and residential structures. MLILY operates a warehouse in Chattanooga.

“During these trying times, a comforting night’s sleep helps restore us all to face the next day’s challenges,” says MLILY USA President Stephen Chen. “We stand with our neighbors as they recover from this tragedy and look to rebuild.”

The company also donated 200 mattresses and 200 pillows to help with tornado relief efforts in Nashville.
