SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WXYZ) — A local charity organization is making sure Michigan children have a safe and comfortable place to lay their heads.
Nationwide, an estimated 2.2 million kids sleep on the floor or share a bed with a family member. In metro Detroit, there are at least 1,000. That is the number of requests a local chapter of Sleep in Heavenly has received.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a 100% volunteer-driven and donation-driven organization that "fully believe that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support that a child needs."
Donations go toward purchasing materials for beds, bed assembly and delivery, building and improving our organization.
