Mission Coffehouse tips going to Sleep In Heavenly Peace in Brookings


BROOKINGS — The Mission of the Month for March at the Mission Coffehouse at First Lutheran Church is Sleep In Heavenly Peace.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a registered 501c3 non-profit serving children in need. It was founded in Kimberly, Idaho, in 2012. SHP is the only charity providing hand-made bunk beds to children who don’t have beds of their own. Not only does the organization deliver these beds to kids in need but it partners with organizations, churches, businesses and individuals to build them at events called “Build Days.”

With so many great charities providing clothing meals and toys, little help goes to something as permanent as providing suitable beds and bedding. SHP is a group of volunteers dedicated to finding those young children living without the luxury of sleeping on a bed or even laying their heads on a pillow. Through the wonderful efforts of volunteers and generous donations, bunk beds are built, assembled and delivered to those children who are otherwise sleeping on couches, blankets or even floors.
