Mavis Henderson is getting back on her feet after Hurricane Harvey thanks to some help from Mattress Mack.

HOUSTON, Texas -- More than $10,000 worth of free furniture was delivered Tuesday to help a Hurricane Harvey flood victim recover from her devastating losses.

Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale was behind the giveaway that is helping several families that lost everything in the storm more than a year ago.

Mavis Henderson went shopping at Gallery Furniture to replace belongings damaged or destroyed in the floods.

She's a disabled veteran and retired nurse.

Mavis got the chance to pick out $10,000 in furniture and $3,600 in accessories.

She also got to meet Mattress Mack.
