SHP is a 100% volunteer organization dedicated to building, assembling and delivering high quality beds for the hundreds of children in our community who sleep every night on couches, blankets or even the floor because their families just can’t afford to buy a bed. which is unique to them.
Childhood inequity is a national issue, and as a national non-profit organization with chapters across the country, SHP works to address this issue. The Colorado Springs chapter welcomes volunteers of all skill levels at its bed-building events, which are open to anyone ages 8 and up (children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian). Their team of trained volunteers are on hand to guide everyone through the process.
SHP also accepts tax-deductible donations as well as new bedding donations. Everything stays in our community and serves the children right here. To contribute to Sleep In Heavenly Peace or to find out how to volunteer and help build beds, visit their website, shpbeds.org.
