Another plea for kids who need beds
Editor, The Sun:
The Holiday season is upon us and as we get ready to give thanks for our blessings, please be aware that there are many children in Wakulla County who do not have and have never slept in their own bed. The lucky ones share a bed or a couch with a sibling. Many are sleeping on the floor.
If you know a child who does not have their own bed, we want to help. The Rotary Club of Wakulla has partnered with Sleep in Heavenly Peace and will be conducting a bed building event on December 2nd at 9 a.m.
Sherrif Jared Miller and the WCSO have generously provided their parking lot as the location for this event.
These beds will be constructed and delivered at no cost to families in Wakulla who have applied through the SHP website.
Please go to shpbeds.org/apply/ and fill out the simple one-page form. You can refer a family who many not be aware of this program.
If you are unable to fill out the form online please contact SHP Tallahassee Chapter President at 844-432-2337 extension 5707. Your information will be kept confidential.
A child’s outcomes in all aspects of their life will be significantly enhanced simply by having their own bed. Let’s make this the best Christmas ever for a child in Wakulla.
NO KID SHOULD SLEEP ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN.
