(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) FFO Home store along with the AFL-CIO held a free mattress giveaway for flood victims on Thursday.

The furniture store gave away 100 mattresses at its store along the North Belt Highway to flood victims who received a voucher from the AFL-CIO.

The voucher was good for a free queen-sized mattress.

FFO Home said they're proud to help families in need in the community.

"It's a small token of our appreciation, but when people rest well things seem to go better and a mattress is one of the integral parts of a home. As we are home furnishing experts, we felt like that was the best place to start." Steve Thomas, FFO Home district manager said.
