WEST UNION, W.Va.- Dominion energy made a $3,500 donation on Friday morning to a new Doddridge County organization.
The Doddridge County chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace was recently formed and builds beds for children, ages 3-17, who do not have them at home. The beds are then delivered to their homes, complete with mattresses, bedding and pillows.
Representatives from the board of education were in attendance as well to show their support.
“Any student that needs a bed who may be sleeping on the couch or maybe sharing a bed would be excited to have their own space and have something that’s theirs and we’ll provide them the rest they need to be focused and ready to go to school the next day,” said Jeremy Waugaman, the Doddridge County mental health coordinator.
The group will be hosting its first bed building event on Saturday, February 29th at the old Doddridge County High School football stadium. Those who wish to donate or volunteer, contact chapter president David Mitchell at (304) 871-1467.
