Virtual Community Service Event | My Very Own Bed

Event Description

Doante by December 22nd and help provide a good night's rest to kids who need it!

Imagine sleeping on a hard, cold floor each night. Unfortunately, that is the reality for far too many children in our community. For a child, a bed is more than a piece of furniture. It’s a place to bounce, to launch superhero flights, and ultimately a comfortable place to snuggle under the covers for a good night’s rest. Adequate sleep directly impacts kids’ physical and mental health and enhances a child's focus and learning at school. Children also benefit from having a place to call their own; it increases their responsibility and independence.

You can be a part of providing a comfortable bed to kids who need them! The Civil Litigation Section is committed to finding ways in which it can serve others and we are partnering again* with My Very Own Bed , a local non-profit that provides new beds and linens to children in families who have recently moved out of homelessness into more stable housing in the Twin Cities.
