Beddings Donations Needed For Sleep In Heavenly Peace Bed BuildSeptember 23, 2020
At Sleep in Heavenly Peace believes that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support that a child needs. Too many children across the United States go without a bed, or even a pillow, to sleep on, including those who live in our own south suburban backyard.
These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets and even floors. This can affect their happiness and health. Sleep in Heavenly Peace endeavors to build quality bunk beds that are delivered to families with children facing financial difficulties.
Under the guidance of the SHP Oak Forest chapter, five stations will be set up in the parking lot of O’Hara and Friends where volunteers will build the beds assembly-line style. SHP will supply the tools. The group expects to make five beds in a 4-hour period.
Beds are delivered to children with a new pillow, twin sheet set and comforter. O’Hare and Friends, 7008 W. 127th St., Palos Heights, will be accepting NEW bedding donations leading up to bed-building day on Oct. 11.
Drop off bedding at the salon during business hours or on the day of the event. Call O’Hara for hours at 708-239-1111. O’Hara can use few more volunteers for the bed build, too.
