Distribution Days

We hold distribution days once or twice a month where we distribute 150-200 beds to Kansas City kids and their families. Distribution days are on Saturday and start at 9:00 a.m. We’re usually finished handing out beds by 11:30 a.m.

We need volunteers to help us get the job done!

For each distribution day we need 10-12 volunteers. All volunteers need to be able to lift and move mattresses (with a partner!) to a client’s vehicle. Some volunteers may be asked to handle data entry, distribute bedding (pillows, sheets & blankets), or help with other logistics. Volunteers need to show up at 8:30 a.m. and are generally through by no later than 11:30 a.m. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old or accompanied by a parent.

This is a great way to serve your community. We welcome individual volunteers but are also looking for groups (churches, clubs, social organizations, businesses) who can provide all the assistance we need for a single distribution day.

If you are interested or have any questions, please sign up to help via our website or contact Doug Kean, doug@sleepyheadbeds.org.
