L&P and Hammond Firefighters Join Together for Family in Need

The Hammond Firefighters Association in Indiana recently responded to an emergency call and found several children sleeping on the floor with only blankets. Their team brought the situation to the local Union’s attention.

After reaching out to the community for donations and support, they contacted L&P to inquire about a discounted price on new beds. Understanding the circumstance, Leggett & Platt chose to donate four twin mattresses to the family. The donations collected by the firefighters were then used to purchase bed frames to lift the children off the floor.

We are very grateful for the opportunity to give back to this family in such an important way. Everyone at L&P would like to wish their family a good night’s sleep for years to come!

Employees in L&P’s Information Technology (IT) department work quietly behind the scenes to maintain our computer systems, analyze and reduce cybersecurity risks, and develop solutions which improve the ways our teams communicate with one another.
