Community builds beds for children

MERIDIAN – On Nov. 12, the Catholic community of Meridian worked with an organization called Sleep In Heavenly Peace building beds. The organization has a simple mission, “no kid sleeps on the floor in our town.” After several months of fundraising, the community raised the money to build 10 beds. Each bed costs $250 and includes the bed, mattress and bed linens. Most had little to no building experience, but came together on a cold, rainy day and got the project done. The group then helped to deliver four of the beds to children who were sleeping on the floor. We are called to serve, and Sleep In Heavenly Peace can surely help with that.
