BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. – A Harrison County organization is building beds on Nov. 13, and they need your help.

The Harrison County Chapter of Sleep In Heavenly Peace will be holding a community bed-building project on Saturday at the Mountaineer Medical Building across from United Hospital Center in Bridgeport.

The organization plans to build 150 beds by the afternoon and will also have a DJ and food for volunteers.

The organization gives beds built to kids in Harrison County who need them, something officials from the organization said is a feeling unlike any other.

“It’s probably the most satisfying thing I’ve ever done, especially in the delivery side. The gratification that comes along with delivering a bed for a kid is amazing,” said Dave Lang, Chapter President for the Harrison County Chapter of Sleeping in Heavenly Peace.

According to West Virginia Kids Count, 20% of children in West Virginia and 16.5% of children in Harrison County are living in poverty.

If you’d like to volunteer to help make beds, you can call Lang at 304-669-9742 or click here. You can also donate to the organization or request a bed on the Sleep in Heavenly Peace website.
