Ways You Can Help!
The work done by Sleepyhead Beds is paid for through pickup fees, fundraising events, grants, sponsorships, and individual donations. We could not do this work without the support of the community! Please consider helping us in one of the following ways!
Provide Financial Support
- A $100-dollar donation buys a week’s worth of gas for our box truck. In a week’s time, we will pick up, sanitize and re-distribute over 50 beds to Kansas City children and their immediate families.
- A $60-dollar donation provides a local Kansas City child with a clean, sanitized bed and bedding
- (we get 10-12 bed requests per day and currently have over 1,884 children on our waitlist)
- A $20-dollar donation provides bedding and a new pillow for a twin or full bed
- (currently we only are able to distribute bedding to about 30% of our clients)
- A $10-dollar donation allow us to provide 5 new pillows
- (we will distribute over 3,000 new pillows this year)
Become a Bed-Head Volunteer
Volunteering your time to sanitize, pick up or deliver beds cuts costs. That means we can supply many more beds and help many more children. Becoming a Bed-Head volunteer is easy, fun, and no special training is involved! You can volunteer individually or bring several friends. A few hours of your time means years of restful sleep for a child in need. Contact us today by filling out our volunteer sign-up.
We also accept bedding! Sleepyhead Beds needs your used bedding of all sizes. With each bed we provide we need bedding, because a bed is just one part of a comfortable night’s sleep. We need Twin, Full and Queen size bedding. We also need Pack-n-Plays for the youngest children on our waitlist Just like with mattresses and box springs, the bedding you do not want will be cherished by the families on our waitlist.

1. Used and new sheets of all sizes
2 Used and new blankets of all sizes
3. New Pillows
4. Pack-n Plays
