About Our Chapter

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering beds to children (ages 3-17) in need in the greater Syracuse and Oswego City area.

Child bedlessness may not be a real word but it is a real problem.

We believe in sharing the need with the community and then providing ways for the community to help meet that need. We are locally all volunteer.
Since our first delivery on October 6th, 2018 we have delivered over 2900 beds and counting.

Volunteer

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.
