A local company gives back to its community.
The Westco Home Furnishing Store of Lamar donated a twin bed mattress to the Economic Security Corporation of Southwest Missouri Early Head Start Program. Who in turn, gave it to a family that lives in Lamar. Iona Neher says she feels blessed that her daughter who’s getting the bed, will soon be sleeping in a big that’s finally big enough for her.
“It was huge because she’s outgrowing her toddler bed and she needed something but we have four kids and we couldn’t financially do it on our own without the help of somebody being gracious enough to donate it to us,” says Neher.
This is the second year in a row that Westco has donated a bed to Head Start.
