The local arm of the national nonprofit Sleep in Heavenly Peace, which builds beds for kids who don’t have a bed of their own, is celebrating a new location on Friday. And they’re doing it by building 50 new beds.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) collects the materials and then builds twin beds for kids. SHP says the Central Oregon chapter has built about 525 beds so far, and is ready for more.
The celebration will happen at the new Central Oregon headquarters at EXPION360 at 1266 SW Lake St. in Redmond. It’s donated space from the owner and CEO of EXPION360.
