CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) – Volunteers spent their morning making sure kids throughout the Chippewa Valley have a comfortable place to sleep.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace’s Wisconsin-Chippewa Falls Chapter built 20 beds to donate to families in need.
Volunteers from leadership Eau Claire also helped Saturday.
While they had a great time building these beds, organizers said the best part is giving one of them to a child.
“The deliveries is the incredibly rewarding part of what we do. Right, being able to do into a household, be able to see the kids race to the beds after its finish, race to the top bunk, be able to jump into a bed, and for a lot of these kids, it’s their first time having their own bed, right. So it’s a first time having a comfortable place to be able to sleep, lay their head and so being on the delivery is just so rewarding to see the kids’ reactions,” chapter co-president Micah Burch said.
He said the chapter’s helped get beds to more than 100 kids since it was created in late 2020.
