Sleep in Heavenly Peace Project 2023
Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a national non-profit organization that recruits partners and local volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch beds to children and families in need. Child bedlessness is a national problem, and Sleep in Heavenly Peace has provided the solution. Sleep in Heavenly Peace believes that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional and mental support that a child needs and has taken that mission to chapters all across the nation!
Sign-up to volunteer to assist in the building of beds alongside the Flossmoor Community Relations Commission, Sleep in Heavenly Peace organizers, the Flossmoor Fire Department and the Flossmoor Volunteer Fire Department Corps. Be sure to select the Oak Forest IL Chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace and specifically select the volunteer date of January 14, 2023 to volunteer for the Flossmoor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service project. Volunteers will build beds from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
To accommodate for weather, size and spacing, this project will take place at the Flossmoor Public Works Department located at 1700 Central Park Avenue in Flossmoor. The Public Works facility is best accessed on Central Park Avenue from Volmer Road (turn at the new Dunkin' Donuts location) or from Governors Highway (turn at W. 198th Street at the Flossmoor Executive Center).
This project is sponsored by the Flossmoor Community Relations Commission in partnership with the Flossmoor Volunteer Fire Department Corporation, which donated $3,000 for building materials. The donation will contribute to the construction of 20 twin bunk beds with mattresses purchased by Sleep in Heavenly Peace.
Can't Build but want to Participate? Help Us Buy Bedding!
Not a builder or are unavailable on Saturday, January 14, 2023? That's ok, there is still a great way to get involved with our Sleep in Heavenly Peace project!
In addition to building the beds, we are also inviting the community to help us fit the beds with brand-new, cozy bedding. You can purchase one or more bedding sets through an Amazon Wishlist curated by the Community Relations Commission, to accompany one of the constructed beds, or to help support Sleep in Heavenly Peace's mission going forward!
