SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE
SHP believes that all children deserve a safe and comfortable place to sleep. So many great charities provide clothing, meals, and toys to families in need. But as wonderful as this aid is, few organizations offer suitable beds and bedding to the kids in these families. Sleep in Heavenly Peace sets out to help fill that gap. If a child needs a bed, we want to make sure they get one. Their motto: No kid sleeps on the floor in our town.
2018 SHP IMPACT
Helping Children in Need Sleep Better
All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. In Idaho and across the US, too many boys and girls go without a bed—or even a pillow—to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and health.
That’s where Sleep in Heavenly Peace comes in. We’re a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. Our organization has grown steadily over time, and we’re working on opening more chapters in different states to serve more people.
ALL HANDS ON DECK
We are seeking all sorts of help to pull of this buildout. With our inagural run at this event, we aim to engage the need of the families in the Naperville 203 and 204 school districts. Utilizing the SHP application infrastructure we will collect 40 applications from local families in need of a bed.
We will build & deliver 40 beds to those families this summer/fall. More importantly, we will discover the greater, ongoing need that exists in our community and develop the community partnerships to help address those needs.
We need volunteers, sponsors, partners and friends of all kinds are needed to help make sure No Kids Sleep on the Floor in our Town!
