Organizations team up to build 100 beds for Kenosha children in need
KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- More than 50 volunteers from the Jockey Foundation teamed up to build beds for kids in need in Kenosha Friday, Jan. 22.
The crew is building 100 beds for 60 families. It's a partnership with a group called Sleep in Heavenly Peace.
If a family has a child between the ages of three and 17, they will have a bed delivered to their home.
“Children without beds to sleep on is a local and national problem,” said SHP local chapter president, Michael Prudhom. “All children deserve a peaceful night’s sleep and we hope to provide beds for all kids in Racine and Kenosha. We are a volunteer organization and partnering with a family-owned company like Jockey, and their amazing team at Jockey Being Family, is tremendously rewarding. We couldn’t do this build without their support and backing. It’s a wonderful feeling to have Jockey and Jockey Being Family as partners – they care deeply about the Kenosha community.”
They'll also get a mattress, sheet set, pillows, comforter, blanket and a stuffed bear.
For future deliveries and consideration, families can apply for beds on the Sleep in Heavenly Peace-Racine/Kenosha website.
