Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Category: ParentingYouth

Helping Children in Need Sleep Better

All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. In Idaho and across the US, too many boys and girls go without a bed—or even a pillow—to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and health.

That’s where Sleep in Heavenly Peace comes in. We’re a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need.

Families who need new beds, including frame, mattress, and new bedding, should visit the website and go to the “Apply for a Bed” tab to complete a very simple application.

Every family that comes through will receive roughly the same amount; family size has no bearing on the amount they will receive.
No worries, it is usually a lot!
How does it run?
St. Louis Area Foodbank brings food to the various locations the day of distributions. Clients line up in their cars and volunteers assist
with the repackaging and distribution. The clients do not even have to get out of their cars!
What if it’s cancelled?
This is an OUTDOOR distribution, which means weather is a primary factor when considering cancellations. A general rule we follow
is if schools are closed, MM is closed. Cancellations can happen for several reasons. Weather, truck issues, volunteer support, in any
instance we will follow the same protocol for the cancellation. An agency wide email will be sent out as soon as the decision is made,
an email will be sent to all clients who are sign up on the list, our Facebook page will have the cancellation information.
