A Buncombe County business owner is doing his part to help end homelessness.

Chuck Emrick, the owner of Mattress Man, donates mattresses and box springs to Homeward Bound.

Each donation goes to supplying a clean, comfortable bed for people in need.

Homeward Bound has helped more than 1800 homeless people find homes. Over the last two years Emrick has provided more than 300 mattresses and box springs to Homeward Bound.

"They're right down on the front lines, bringing the culmination from that homeless situation into a home, which is the best ability for an individual to better their life," Emrick said of Homeward Bound.

From now through next Tuesday, the store on Tunnel Road is taking donations of furniture and other household items.
