St. Luke's Missions Celebrates a New Partner: Sleep In Heavenly Peace
As part of our Restoring Hope Initiative, we are so excited that Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) fits well with our commitment to sustainable and dignified housing for our neighbors.
Across the U.S., so many children go without a bed to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on floors – sometimes without a mattress. A bed is a basic need for the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of a child. SHP partners with organizations to build, assemble, and deliver top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need.
Join us and help build these beds at a special workday at St. Luke's campus on Saturday, April 29. No prior experience with tools or woodworking is required.
