WESTFIELD, NJ — When Ron Shovlin, owner of Shovlin Mattress Factory with his wife, Kara, heard that the family of a man who works in Downtown Westfield recently lost everything in a fire, he said they immediately wanted to help out by donating and delivering five beds — one for each member of the family.

"They lost everything. I offered to give them any beds they needed,” Shovlin said,

It wasn’t the first time the Shovlins have helped this way. In August, they gave beds to another family that had lost nearly all of their possessions in a Westfield house fire.

"I try to help out when I can,” Shovlin said.

Shovlin Mattress Factory has a factory and showroom in Fanwood and a pop-up showroom on Quimby Street in Downtown Westfield.
