INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Families at Coburn Place have new mattresses to sleep on, thanks to former Colts punter Pat McAfee and Leesa Sleep.

McAfee delivered 100 mattresses Thursday to the housing facility for survivors of domestic abuse.

The children at Coburn Place loved helping McAfee tear open the boxes and plastic packaging before sprawling out to try the new mattresses.

For every 10 mattresses sold, Leesa Sleep donates a mattress to organizations helping families.

"A mattress is a place not only for you to sleep but a place for you to rejuvenate," said McAfee. "Here at the Coburn Place, it's also a place to kind of realign your life. It's taking a new path. We just want them to be comfortable, rested and know that the world is theirs and that the future is very, very bright."

McAfee may be retired, but he got a workout Thursday, tossing the football with the kids at Coburn Place.
