Join them in giving kids the gift of healthy sleep.

The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation has again provided a matching gift for ALL donations to My Very Own Bed up to $10,000.

During this public health crisis, the need for beds for kids in our community has only increased. Already this year, we have reached over 300 children, and our referral partners and other organizations reach out regularly with more requests. Perhaps now more than ever, kids need these beds to support their health and well-being and to keep them comfortable while they stay at home all day.

  • As one mom recently shared, her kids use their Chromebooks on their beds each day to do their distance learning.
  • Another said that with improved sleep, her children are healing from the trauma they experienced being homeless for over two years. Their appetites have improved, they are more eager to get up in the morning, and they love spending time in their comfortable beds.

Every $200 raised will help provide front-door delivery of a new bed and dream kit (new sheets, blanket, pillow, mattress bad, and stuffed animal) to a child in our community who would otherwise be sleeping on the floor or sharing a bed with a parent or sibling. Gifts of any size will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000.

We are so grateful for the ongoing support of the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation. With this latest gift, the foundation will have provided $80,000 to My Very Own Bed since 2016. Please join them in supporting our work and providing children with the gift of healthy sleep by donating now.
