TAMPA, Fla. (FOX 13) - Juan and Veronica Arevelo's garage is filled with boxes of comfort. They design pajamas for children.
For every set they sell, they sent a set to a child in their home country of Venezuela.
The company is called Meru. They established it when they lived in South America.
"The need is widespread in Venezuela. We're just helping out in the Andes because it's a place where we have good memories," said Juan. "Anytime somebody buys a pajama from our website, that puts it in the inventory to have a pajama delivered to Venezuela."
Veronica explained many parents there do not have the money to buy comfort items.
"There's a crisis in the country, so we try to help out with clothing warm clothing for the kids up there. They don't have heating or air conditioning in the summertime and in the cold days. It gets pretty cold," said Juan.
They hope to give children a good night's sleep.
"We're very happy, very excited to be able to help and we just want to spread the word," said Juan.
