#MLK Bedding Drive for Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Save to Favorites

Adams, Brown and Pike Counties RSVP

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a nationwide, non-profit organization answering the call to one of those pressing national problems. This is a group of volunteers dedicated to finding those young children living without the luxury of sleeping on a bed or even laying their heads on a pillow. SHP’s mission is to partner with organizations, businesses, and individuals to build beds, provide bedding, and deliver to kids in need. As the ONLY charity that builds hand-made bunk beds, SHP also gives children dignity, comfort, and peace of mind.

From 2012 to 2020, SHP has built and delivered 60,448 beds with the help of 94,620 volunteers from 242 chapters across the country. Sleep in Heavenly Peace is where it is today because countless individuals asked the question, "What can I do?" Adams, Brown and Pike County RSVP did just that and discovered that one of SHP’s greatest needs is for the bedding that accompanies each bed.

If you would like to be a part of the Adams, Brown and Pike County RSVP’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of National Service project, please bring your contributions to either of the RSVP offices (office hours, locations, and contact information are posted on the back page of this newsletter). You may bring in any of the following items and our staff will see that they are delivered to Sleep in Heavenly Peace:

¨ Greatest need-new twin-sized comforters and mattress protectors; also need new quilts and blankets;

¨ Second greatest need-new standard-size bed pillows; and/or

¨ Home-made afghans, quilts, and blankets.
