NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Bedlessness is an actual disaster that not lots of people find out about. That’s based on the nonprofit, Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP).
Research surrounding childhood bedlessness are few and much between, too. Public Relations Supervisor, Anna Marshall, mentioned SHP has achieved its personal analysis of the nationwide mattress disaster, discovering about 3% of American kids don’t have their very own beds.
“We do estimate it’s over 3 million kids in the US that would not have beds at their very own,” mentioned Marshall.
Their mission is to construct and ship beds to kids in want throughout the nation. There’s a Nashville Chapter devoted to serving households within the Center Tennessee space.
Information 2 has partnered with SHP for our mother or father firm’s Nexstar Founder’s Day of Caring that takes place later this month.
SHP at present has three storage models stuffed with beds able to be delivered and assembled to kids within the space ages three to 17.
It prices about $250 to construct and ship one fully-furnished mattress and $500 for a bunk mattress.
We hope you’ll take into account supporting Information 2 in our efforts to lift funds for SHP.
