Bed Blitz

Home

 

“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.”

About

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 360 Wylie Dr. #305  Normal, IL 61761
