NORTH LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA _ Giving back to others is fundamentally engrained in Eddie Greeley, CEO of Sleep Pro™, a wholesale factory direct enterprise that specializes in therapeutic sleep systems. Recently, Greeley played an instrumental role in changing the lives of a grandmother and her four grandchildren in North Lauderdale, Florida.

Joy Stewart and her four grandchildren had been living in dire straights for some time. Ms. Stewart had been struggling to keep the family together since she traveled to New York to retrieve her grandchildren from the foster care system, in which they had been placed due to her daughter’s addiction. Since the children were turned over to her, Stewart had been struggling to make ends meet. The family was forced to live in a car, a truck, and then an abandoned house. Her dedication, determination and sheer will enabled her to keep them together, as she struggled to make ends meet. Finally, a Broward County Deputy from the Broward County Sheriff’s Department heard of the family’s living situation and hardship and intervened

Greeley, along with the home improvement show “Designing Spaces,” the Broward County Sheriff’s Department, and Rebuilding Together, a Broward County non-profit dedicated to helping veterans, the elderly and low income families with home repair, came to the family’s aid and through a massive joint venture, refurbished the entire home.

Greeley became involved in the family’s plight after learning of Stewart’s struggles through the television show, “Designing Spaces,” which airs on the Lifetime Channel and is a nationally known home improvement television series that travels all over the country tackling home improvement and decorating challenges.

Without hesitation, Greeley jumped in to help, donated five beds for the entire family and helped them settle into their refurbished home. Stewart received the SleepZero™ gravity bed and each grandchild, who suffers from severe asthma, received the company’s all natural hypoallergenic mattresses.

Helping people is nothing new for Greeley. Over the years, he has quietly donated beds to those in need on a case-by-case basis in the Boston area. His commitment to social consciousness runs deep, and while he works to help people transform their lives in some small way, Greeley feels he is the one who is truly lucky.

“At the end of the day I go to bed knowing I’ve been blessed,” he said. “I know I’m doing the right thing.”
