Bunks Across America: National Bed Build Day, September 10th at Community West Church


About Sleep in Heavenly Peace
Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) is a 501(c)3 national non-profit whose mission is to end child bedlessness and ensure that kids aren't sleeping on the floor. Bunks Across America is the name of our one-day, national, bed build effort. Henrico's SHP chapter is led in part by Saint Bridget Parishioner, Curtis Marshall.  

This Year's Bunks Across America

  • Goal: Build over 7,500 beds with 15,000 volunteers across the country.
  • Theme: "Never Forget"
  • Time: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 
  • Location:  Community West Church, 2340 Pump Road, Henrico, VA 23238
  • Skills/Tools: Sleep in Heavenly Peace provides the training, the tools, and the safety gear. 
  • While we have had many sponsored builds for schools, churches and businesses, this is our first large open community build and is scheduled to be our largest build ever! 
  • This is a great opportunity for families, clubs, companies, etc. to participate in a large service project with others. If you have been considering a build for your company, school, or organization, please consider volunteering or just stop by so we can show you around the build process!  Feel free to share this with friends, family, or co-workers. All volunteers should sign-up via the SignUp Genius below so we can properly track the numbers. We have created the sign-up at 50 volunteers, but we can accommodate more and will build more beds if needed!  
  • Age Notice: Volunteers under 18 should bring a waiver completed by a parent/guardian prior to participating.  Volunteers under 14 years of age should have a parent/guardian present on site.  


Our Sponsor
This build is made possible by the generous donation of the Catholic Community Foundation - Women's Giving Circle.  

Donations of new twin sheets and new twin comforters will be accepted that day but are certainly not required.
