Lansing Non-Profit will donate cribs Sunday March 21st
Do you know a family where a child needs a bed?
The Lansing chapter Sleep in Heavenly Peace builds and donates 120 beds to those in need. They are a non-profit making double beds for children who may not have their own bed.
Many children across the country sleep on the couch or even on the floor, and SHP is committed to providing a place for children to lay their heads. The nonprofit is running a bed-making marathon this Sunday, March 21st at 8:00 am on the Pierson Highway.
Jarrod Olsen, president of the Lansing chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace, says this is something they have never done before, that they usually build the beds and hand them over at another time.
We never did it where we build and deliver on the same day. We usually build, store everything, and then deliver here and there. This time we’re doing one build, one delivery, all on the same day. After that, I will no longer have any material in a storage unit. It’s exactly what we build, we build houses that day.
According to Fox47, Sleep in Heavenly Peace already has 200 volunteers. If you are interested in donating or volunteering, you can find more information on their Facebook page. When you register, SHP will ask you to raise $ 100 to be donated for the materials, lumber, mattresses, and linens needed.
