Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) is a volunteer 501(c)3 charitable organization that builds bunk beds for local children who are are sleeping on floors, couches, and other uncomfortable situations without beds. In October 2018, Bob and Betsy, saw this episode of Returning the Favor and now we have a chapter in Chattanooga. Not only do they deliver these beds, equipped with mattresses, sheets, pillows and a blanket to kiddos in need, but they partner with organizations, churches, businesses, and individuals to build them at events called Build Days! On its first build day in February 2019 35 beds were built.
How do we know the beds are going to the kids that really need them? All applicants are qualified through the national selection committee. They have an online application here. Our $3,000 funded a build day to create 20 bunk beds. 40 Chattanooga kids now have beds to sleep in that were once using the floor or a couch. No kid sleeps on the floor in our town.
