Bed Blitz



“No more sleeping on a floor, crashing on a couch, or crowding four to a bed! A safe bed of your own brings a sense of pride, a feeling of security, and a good night’s sleep.”


The Bed Blitz is a community driven project sponsored by the WBRP Tool Library and Youth Build McLean County. The Bed Blitz program is a one-day event where volunteers come together to assemble bed frames for local children who are 4-18 years old in low income families. Through the Bed Blitz, local youth will receive a “bed set” that includes: twin bed frame, mattress, hand made quilt, pillow, sheets, teddy bear, laundry detergent and books!

Event Information 

Bed Blitz will take place on October 12, 2019, at YouthBuild McLean County 360 Wylie Dr. #305  Normal, IL 61761


Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2019 Bed Blitz. Individuals will be notified via phone after October 1st if they have been selected for a bed.
