A Bed for Every Child is now in its 7th year and continues to have a simple mission that has a huge impact on a child’s life growing up in poverty: give that child a bed of their own.
There are five things that a child needs to thrive: food, water, shelter, clothing, and sleep.
As a society, we have worked tirelessly to ensure children have access to the first four, but in regards to sleep, we have yet to reach the same level.
Although a bed is not the first thing we think of when discussing poverty, far too many children are growing up in a household that simply cannot afford a bed for their child(ren), therefore these children are not able to obtain the good night’s sleep they need to get the education they deserve.
To date, we have provided nearly 10,000 beds to children in need all across Massachusetts.
