Last month Troop 279 of Point of Rocks, MD had the opportunity to volunteer with a wonderful organization named Sleep In Heavenly Peace which builds and delivers beds to children in need in the area. The Scouts assisted with the transportation of new beds from the workshop to the storage facility. They also got to learn about SIHP’s mission and how they built the beds.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace’s mission statement:
All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. In Idaho and across the US, too many boys and girls go without a bed—or even a pillow—to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and health.
That’s where Sleep in Heavenly Peace comes in. We’re a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling, and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. Our organization has grown steadily over time, and we’re working on opening more chapters in different states to serve more people.
