On Saturday, June 15th, our LaGrange teammates came together to lend a hand to the LaGrange chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace and assist in the construction of 80 bunk beds.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a non-profit that builds and delivers beds to children in need. By noticing the generosity in other charities when it came to donations of clothing, toys, and food, the founders of Sleep in Heavenly Peace saw there was a gap to fill in respect to donated beds and bedding. Their belief is “No kid sleeps on the floor in our town.” This past Saturday was the first National Bunks Across America Build Day, and 120 Sleep in Heavenly chapters took part in this historic day of giving back.
This was the 2nd year volunteering for the LaGrange team with Sleep in Heavenly Peace. Over 200 volunteers came out to participate on Saturday, exceeding the expected 125. This became a community-wide effort, where local businesses, churches, and teams donated their time for this amazing cause. Everyone from children as young as 4 to adults had a part in making this special event a success.
