It's hard to believe children in our community are sleeping on floors, sofas and chairs. Regardless of the reason, we believe every child deserves the dignity of sleeping in a bed of their own. Here's an opportunity for you and/or your team to partner with us to make a difference in the lives of children right here in our community.
In past years, our 150 Beds initiative took place over the course of a weekend. However, things have changed this year due to COVID19. We have already started delivering beds through smaller local groups seeking community service opportunities. This year’s initiative kicked off with a service project for incoming law students at the University of Richmond. On August 18th, 2021, we delivered and set up 25 beds for local children without beds. If you'd like to find out how your group or team can help, send us an email at email@example.com.
We will still have our weekend event in mid-November. This will provide individuals and families an opportunity to take part in this life changing initiative. Once we nail down the date, we will post volunteer opportunities as we've done in the past.
IN the meanwhile, here's how you can help: Make a donation below and/or sign up to load and/or deliver beds. Donations of new sheets and blankets are also needed. Have a group that would like to make blankets? Contact us for information about easy to make twin size blankets.W
All of those who will receive beds have been vetted by Social Services, local schools and communities of faith.
