Military Family Receives Surprise After Hurricane Matt
In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew destroyed thousands of homes and displaced families across the Atlantic coast. After being stranded for 18 hours, the Ebersole family from Virginia Beach lost nearly all of their belongings, including their beds. They have been living in a trailer and long stay hotels while enduring time apart due to Sean’s job in the Navy.
The Ebersole’s recently moved back into their home and are slowly working to replace their belongings and Sleep Number® was happy to be there to help.
In partnership with Blue Star Families, Sleep Number helped surprise Chief Warrant Officer Sean Ebersole’s family with new beds on Tuesday. Sean was nominated through a recent Blue Star Families “SleepStakes” Sweepstakes, which gave people an opportunity to nominate a deserving service member to win a Sleep Number bed.
Out of hundreds of nominations, The Ebersole family’s story rose to the top as a family truly deserving of a good night’s sleep. Sean and his wife received a Queen i8 bed and their two older kids each received a twin kids bed.
“The Ebersole family has sacrificed so much so that we can sleep safe at night. We are proud to present them with this new bed with the hope that it helps give them the sleep and rest they deserve.”
