This weekend, local volunteers and businesses will gather to help children in need and ensure that every child can sleep in a bed at night.
The local chapter of the non-profit organization "Sleep in Heavenly Peace" is composed of volunteers who are committed to building, assembling and providing first-class bunk beds for children and families in need.
Roanoke Valley Chapter Chairman Dave Jones (Dave Jones) said that Southwest Virginia is in great demand. He said that many children either share the bed with their parents, sleep on the sofa, or even sleep on the floor.
Jones said: "Every child should have his own bed."
Jones said that in this year alone, they have manufactured and delivered 81 beds. The Roanoke Valley branch just opened in January.
Two Lowe's local stores are working with the organization and will organize volunteers to build at least 40 bunk beds tomorrow. Salem store manager Lauren Thomas said the four stores together donated wood, tools and money to buy mattresses and bedding.
Thomas said: "We are very pleased to be able to donate these beds and the matching items." "We are very happy to give back to the communities we live in. These four stores will have approximately 75 to 100 employees assisting in this work on Saturday. "
