Since 2010, Kansas City area children and families have spent an estimated 3,500,000 nights on the 25,000+ mattresses Sleepyhead Beds has distributed free of charge. That’s a lot of Zzzzzz.

Sleepyhead Beds improves the quality of life for children and their families by providing clean, reusable beds and bedding. We also contribute to the health and environment of our community by sanitizing beds and keeping them out of landfills.

Kids needs beds, landfills don’t.
Since its inception in 2010, Sleepyhead Beds has repurposed almost 900,000 pounds of beds. That’s almost 1 million cubic feet of mattresses that we’ve kept out of landfills – enough to completely fill 5 Good Year Blimps, 11 Olympic swimming pools, and over 5 times as heavy as the Space Shuttle!
