“A Bed for Every Child” campaign underway, money raised will provide beds for children in need

SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts (WWLP) – For many children across western Massachusetts, a bed to sleep in is a luxury their families cannot afford.

Freedom Credit Union works with the Pioneer Valley Chapter of the Cooperative Credit Union Association for “A Bed for Every Child,” a fundraiser to provide beds and bedding for children in need.

In 2011, the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless learned that many public school students were not getting enough sleep because they did not have their own beds. The coalition created “A Bed for Every Child” to help children get beds, sheets, blankets and pillows.

Donations can be made in every FCU branch until Friday, December 17th.

Each $ 250 donation is equivalent to a Comforts of Home package that includes sheets, blankets, pillows, and oral hygiene kits. All US $ 350 allow for a “Bed Buddy” package that provides a child with a complete bed set.
