About Us

This chapter was started in October 2022 with students at Central High School in the Geometry in Construction class building beds. It has quickly grown to be a community-wide organization and effort to make sure no child sleeps on the floor in our town! Our goal was to build a minimum of 100 beds for our local children in 2023. Thank you to all of the members of our community who helped to proudly surpass that goal by building and delivering 178 beds!! The goal is build that many beds again in 2024!

We are now accepting bed requests for Grand Junction, Clifton, Palisade, Fruita, Loma, Mack, and Whitewater. The wait for a bed depends on the need, volunteers, and our current funding available to build more beds.

Bedding Need
Donations of NEW twin-size sheets, comforters, quilts, and pillows are much appreciated! Quilt dimensions need to be 86” – 90” in length and 60”- 66” in width, with the very minimum being 60”x86”. Unfortunately, we cannot accept used items. In addition to our drop-off locations below bedding can be shipped directly to: Central High School – SHP 550 Warrior Way / Grand Junction, CO 81504

No experience, no worries. Our builds are designed with everyone in mind. It’s easy and it’s fun. Our builds and deliveries provide a great opportunity for families, corporate team building and service projects.

Our organization is dependent on and designed around community involvement. We provide an opportunity for the community to come together and embrace these children in need. Whether it’s helping at a Build Day or on a Delivery Day, we have something for everyone. Not only are events fun, they are rewarding. A few hours of your time will mean the world to child sleeping in an unfavorable condition.

Want to be more involved?

Critical to our success is our core team. Our core team is a group of volunteers that take on a leadership role during our builds and deliveries. At a bed build, they simply provide instruction to our volunteers, oversee tasks and answer questions. It's really easy and no experience or skills are needed, you simply need a big heart and attention to detail. There is no set commitment, if you can help once every month or two that's great, once or twice a month even better. Our events usually take place on Saturday's anytime between 8 am and 3 pm. So what do you think? If you want to join our team or if have more questions click the button below and a member of our team will get in touch with you.
