All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. All 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 their 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.
Saturday: 10am, 1pm, 4pm
Sunday: 11am, 2pm
Volunteering Requirements:
Each volunteer is required to fill out an Indemnification Release Form.
No child under the age of 12 is allowed to participate in a Build Day.
Overage minors are required to be accompanied by a legal guardian.
