Distribution Days

We hold appointment only distribution days once or twice a month where we distribute 150-200 beds to Kansas City kids and their families. Distribution days are on weekdays and Saturdays by appointment time only. The upcoming dates for January 2022 will be posted soon.

For each distribution day we need 5-8 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 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 send an email to progmgr@sleepyheadbeds.org.
