The store made national headlines when Jim McIngvale opened his mattress stores as shelters for those who were flooded by Hurricane Harvey. Now, the furniture seller known as "Mattress Mack" is helping those impacted by the storm heal from the mental wounds left behind, KTRK reported.
McIngvale’s daughter, Dr. Liz McIngvale, is a Baylor College of Medicine professor and social worker. The family is now offering mental health grants to those still suffering through Peace of Mind Foundation.
But the elder McIngvale is helping feed the body as well as the mind this Thanksgiving.
