It’s incredible how our community partners leave a lasting impression on our hearts. The Northwest LaGrange team supported the “Build a Bunk” initiative by Sleep in Heavenly Peace in 2019 and were so honored to team up with them yet again to make a difference for the kids in their community.
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 donating clothing, toys, and food, they saw that there was a gap to fill in respect to donated beds and bedding. Their belief is that “no kid sleeps on the floor in our town.”
Our LaGrange teammates reached out to see if they needed any help and were informed that every Thursday people meet and deliver bunks to the children. They helped with delivering the beds from storage units to homes and helped put together the bedding. It was a full circle moment to have the opportunity to assist with delivery when a couple of years ago the team supported the construction.
Our teammates enjoyed lending a helping hand and having the opportunity to continue to support an organization that truly looks for ways to serve daily. We look forward to participating more in the future. If you would like to help Sleep in Heavenly Peace, you can search for a branch near you and learn how to volunteer at https://www.shpbeds.org/.
