50 beds to be delivered to kids in our community who don’t currently have one

FRESNO, California — Some kids throughout Fresno and Clovis will no longer have to sleep on the floor.

Over the weekend, our station partnered with the nonprofit Sleep in Heavenly Peace to build bunk beds across America.

Monday those beds will be delivered to kids in our community.

Volunteers will go to the homes and help the children put them together.

A total of 50 beds were built this weekend, that should help a portion of the 500 kids in the area who don’t currently have one.

This project is part of a national movement.

Our stations parent company Nexstar chose this event for it’s annual day of service called Founder’s Day of Caring.

“Our stations are really involved everyday but the truth is that we try and do something extra special for our Nexstar’s Founders Day of Caring and today I think building beds for kids that don’t have them, that’s pretty special,” said General Manager of KSEE24 and CBS47, Mathew Rosenfeld.

Saturday 5.000 beds were made across the nation to be delivered.

“All kinds of things I have seen.. we had a little boy who had scoliosis that was sleeping on the floor to me that breaks my heart and i want to help as much as i can in anyway that i can,” said Alisa Sipes with Sleep in Heavenly Peace.

In the past the volunteers said the kids are ecstatic to finally have a bed.

Join us for our evening shows, we will bring you those moments.
