Rotary helping build beds in partnership with Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Rotary District 6670 members are gearing up for Rotary Day of Service scheduled for Saturday, at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds, 7801 Anthony Wayne Ave., Cincinnati. The district has joined with the Butler County chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing beds for children aged 3-17.

There will be two shifts available to volunteer: 9:30 a.m. to noon, and 12:30-3 p.m. Volunteers of all ages are needed. No tools or experience required.

SHP works to address the need for beds for children. There are hundreds of children on the waiting list in the local area. This collaboration between local chapters of SHP and District 6670 marks the second time the two organizations have partnered to make a difference. The previous event, organized in 2022, saw over 140 Rotarians and volunteers come together to build and furnish 110 beds.

This year, eight Rotary clubs – West Chester/Liberty, Fairfield, Franklin-Carlisle, Hamilton, Mason-Deerfield, Middletown, Dayton, and Springboro – pooled their resources and secured matching District 6670 grants to raise $22,000. This funding will cover the cost of constructing 125 handmade bed frames and supplying mattresses. However, the organizations need additional support to fulfill the bedding needs, including pillows, sheets, and comforters.
