Wilson’s World: Beds for Kids Helping Children Who are in Need of a Bed
Beds for Kids provides not only needs beds for children but also all types of family furnishings and accessories.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – In 2010 a group of people got together to provide furniture for a homeless family who got their first home. It was then that they found out just how many kids in Mecklenburg County are in need of beds and other essential furniture. It was then that Beds for Kids was born.
Wilson was at the warehouse of the now non-profit Beds for Kids where he was learning more about the organization and how many beds they have provided for kids. They work with families who are transitioning out of shelters and into a permanent home.
Dromma is one company who partners with Bed for Kids. Designed and manufactured in North Carolina, Dromma is an on-line only company that offers a quality memory foam mattress. Through the end of April, order a mattress from Dromma and as part of their Give a Dream program they will donate a mattress to Beds for Kids.
There are over 15 thousands kids in Mecklenburg County that are in need of beds. Beds for Kids is not only in need of beds, but also other household furniture and furnishings as well as volunteers to help.
