Houston Astros and Mattress Firm donate 500 mattresses to Harvey relief

HOUSTON—Houston Astros Shortstop Carlos Correa and the Houston Children's Charity teamed up with Mattress Firm to donate mattresses to those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Hundreds of trucks waited outside the Mattress Firm Distribution Center Friday in southwest Houston where 500 mattresses were distributed.

"Our goal is to raise $500,000 to distribute 5,000 mattresses, bedding, linen to families on our waiting list and we're still getting applications in today, said Caitlyn Pesl of Houston Children's Charity.

The group also established the Hurricane Harvey Children's Relief Fund to reach even more families in need post Harvey.
