HICKSVILLE, N.Y., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- To give troops a soft spot to rest their heads, Sleepy's, the family-owned east coast mattress company, has developed a pillow donation program in partnership with Give2TheTroops, a non-profit organization which sends care packages to the military.  Through a program called "Comfort Our Troops," when consumers purchase any Tempur-Pedic pillow at one of Sleepy's 700 retail locations between January 28 and February 28 Sleepy's will send a travel pillow to troops overseas via care package from the Give2TheTroops organization. The pillows will be packaged with other "comforts of home" such as snacks and toiletries.  

"Sleepy's is proud to engage our community to support the men and women who serve our country through the 'Comfort Our Troops' program," said Adam Blank, Chief Operating Officer at Sleepy's.  "We hope that when they lay their heads down, they are reminded how truly grateful we are for their service."

"A cozy bed is one of the things that our soldiers miss the most while they are away," said Andi Grant, President and Founder of Give2TheTroops. "The 'Comfort Our Troops' program is a great way for people to give our soldiers a little piece of home and help them sleep a little easier."

To purchase a pillow in support of the "Comfort Our Troops" program, please visit one of Sleepy's 700 retail locations beginning January 28.  For information on the program, please visit or
