Young Men's Service League Tomball Builds Beds for Kids in Need
On June 25, several mother-son duos from the Young Men's Service League - Tomball chapter rolled up their sleeves to help build beds for children in our community through the North Houston chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP).
Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a national non-profit with chapters across the country. SHP is powered by volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. Answering the call to a national problem, SHP believes that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support that a child needs.
The North Houston chapter of SHP is a 100% volunteer organization. Donations stay in our community and serve children right here. All funds are used to build and deliver SHP's fully furnished beds to children in need so that "no kid sleeps on the floor in our town." Expenses include tools, lumber and hardware for Build Days and new mattresses, bedding and pillows for deliveries. In addition to volunteering, community members can make bedding donations directly and drop them off at Northwoods Presbyterian Church, located at 3320 Cypress Creek Pkwy, Houston TX, 77068.
