Sleep in heavenly peaceSleep in Heavenly Peace

We are an organization that builds and delivers beds to children who do not have a bed. Our motto: "No kid sleeps on the floor in our town!"
There are so many great charities that provide clothing, meals and toys for families in need, but as wonderful as they are, little help goes to something as permanent as providing suitable beds and bedding for their children. Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a group of volunteers dedicated to finding those young children that do not have the luxury of sleeping on a bed or even laying their heads on a pillow. Through the wonderful efforts of volunteers and generous donations, bunk beds are built, assembled and delivered to those children who are otherwise sleeping on couches, blankets or even floors.
4 Bunk Beds will be on display at the Des Moines Holiday Boutique Show on the Ballroom Level 4. 
They will be taking donations for the onsite build that will be taking place at the Des Moines Home and Garden Show held at the Iowa Events Center February 7-10, 2019.
