Elastec in Carmi will be co-hosting a community cleanup day with the White County CEO program on Saturday January, 25 in the Elastec parking lot at 1309 W. Main St.
Child bedlessness is a national problem, and as a national nonprofit with chapters spread across the country, SHP has provided the solution.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a volunteer organization that builds beds for kids who are sleeping on the floor and there are multiple ways to get involved right here in the communities of White County.
Chapter President Kyle Fenton will present an overview and mission of SHP, with time for Q & A, and offer an opportunity for individual involvement on Saturday, January 25 from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. at the White County Farm Bureau. See how you can help get kids off the floor in our very own community.
"At SHP, we fully believe that a bed is a basic need for the proper
physical, emotional, and mental support that a child needs. When it was
brought to our attention that the need for beds went far beyond our own
neighborhoods, we stepped up and took initiative. If a child needs a bed, we want to make sure they get one. No kid sleeps on
the floor in our town."--Kyle Fenton
