Mission Statement

Goal: To build 500 beds in a 24 hour period, Recruit 2000 volunteers and Recruit 200 community partners.

Mission: 'By building beds and providing items to promote safe sleep and calming bedtime rituals, we hope to improve the bedtime routines and sleep quality of Kentucky children, bringing communities together to tackle a shared challenge, recognize and capitalize on local communities' and individuals' strengths and expertise and empower volunteers with new skills and confidence.'

Description

The Build-A-Bed project will be held as a 24-hour 'build blitz,' bringing together AmeriCorps members and approximately 200 other community volunteers to build 500 twin size beds and prepare the 'bedtime bags' for Kentucky children in need. The event, complete with entertainment, will be held in central KY at the start of AmeriCorps Week (May 9-15). We will again be relying on community support and donations, as well as increased partnerships to complete the project.
