300 ‘Sleep in Heavenly Peace’ volunteers help build beds for children in need

Local News

(WSYR-TV) — Coming together to lift our kids off the floor, “Bunks Across America” wrapped up its event at Marcellus Park today.

More than 300 volunteers came together for the event. It’s the first one the non-profit Sleep in Heavenly Peace is holding here.

The goal? To build beds for children who don’t have one so that “no kid sleeps on the floor in our town.”

From August to April the Syracuse chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace has delivered 217 beds.
