Give a good night’s rest to a Child and donate to the Leadership Oakland "Day of Service"!
July 18, 2020
Leadership Oakland XXX is teaming up with Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) MI-Western Wayne County to raise funds and awareness for a Day of Service project.
A good night’s rest makes a world of difference and since April 2018, the SHP MI-Western Wayne County chapter has completed eight large builds, with over 145 bunk beds built! They have delivered over 250 beds to kids across Metro Detroit. Their goal is to make sure, “no kid sleeps on the floor in our town.”
SHP MI-Western Wayne County Chapter has over 1000 bed requests in their queue currently that were received from families who want their child to have a real bed to sleep in. Once the applications are vetted, they schedule the deliveries. Then the building begins and deliveries of a new bed with bedding are completed bringing the biggest smiles to the families and children who receive them.
