70 Turn Up To Move Mattresses For Charity

BALTIMORE, (UPI) —  The director of the Ronald McDonald House charity in Baltimore said a call for help brought in 70 “McMiracles” in the form of volunteers.

Sandy Pagnotti, executive director of the facility, said she sent on an email saying the charity needed “bodies,” and she ended up with “70 men on the doorstep at 8 a.m.,” The Baltimore Sun reported Monday.

“I call them McMiracles,” Pagnotti said of the volunteers.

She said the men were put to work swapping out beds at the 36-room house, which provides shelter to families with children undergoing medical treatment at five area hospitals, for nearly 100 mattresses donated by Tempur-Pedics.

Pagnotti said firefighters spearheaded an assembly line for the project.

“Instead of a bucket brigade up the steps, we had a chain of mattresses,” Pagnotti said.

She said the old mattresses will be donated to area homeless shelters.
