Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean it’s time to stop giving. Lowe’s in Southfield recently donated supplies to a charity called Sleep in Heavenly Peace, which delivers bunk beds to children in need. The charity is now asking for people to donate their time.
Wendell Gramlich, the president of the Michigan Metro Detroit chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace said, “They’re sleeping on air mattresses, on the floor, sleeping bags, sharing a bed with mom or grandma.” Gramlich’s wife saw the need for this type of charity when working with students who were too tired to study. She thought if there are several students in Westland without beds, there must be a lot more in Detroit.
The couple brought the charity to Metro Detroit last June. Since then they’ve built and delivered 56 beds, and this Saturday they’re planning on delivering 26 more beds that have already been made.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace needs 30 volunteers to help with deliveries this coming Saturday ( January 5). The deliveries will take place between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
