Gives disadvantaged children the opportunity to get a good night’s sleep by providing new twin or full bed sets.
Family must complete an application and show proof of income and residency, provide a valid birth certificate for each child, and meet federal poverty guideline requirements. After the application has been processed, a Foundation staff member visits the family’s residence to verify the need for a bed. Upon approval, the family can pick up the bed from the Foundation’s warehouse. Approximately one month after the bed is received, the Foundation staff member visits again to make sure the bed is being put to good use and to inform the family about other Foundation resources.
