EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2013
We're close to our goal of $200 donated! We're getting buried in pillows that people have brought to our office! Click the button and help us reach our goal. Approximately 1 in every 42 children in Kansas City sleeps on hard floors, on sofas or in cars. Mother & Child Health Coalition staff wants to do something about that. For our 2013 holiday project, the MCHC staff will donate new pillows to metro area kids through Sleepy Head Beds. This wonderful local organization delivers more than 1,500 beds each year, to over 2,200 kids who otherwise wouldn’t have a bed of their own to sleep in.
Sleepy Head Beds processes donated, used mattresses, box springs and bedding for the families. Each child also receives their very own, fresh new pillow.
We invite you to participate with us this year, and provide kids in the community a new pillow to go with their bed.
Two ways to help:
Buy a pillow or pillows yourself, and bring them to the Mother & Child Health Coalition office or a meeting;
Donate on crowdrise.com using your debit or credit card, and we’ll buy the pillows. You’ll get a receipt from Greater Giving for your records.
Our deadline is Friday, November 29. We’ll be delivering all pillows collected to Sleepy Heads on Monday, December 2.
For more information about Sleepy Head Beds, you can visit their website: www.sleepyheadbeds.org.
Donations in any amount will be gratefully accepted. Thank you very much for your generosity, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Your friends at Mother & Child Health Coalition and the Sleepy Heads kids
