Bed Blitz

● Tools & Housing ●

The WBRP Bed Blitz gives local youth a twin-size bed frame, a brand new mattress, sheets, pillows, a blanket or quilt, laundry detergent, books, a hygiene kit, and a teddy bear. This entire kit is given away for free thanks to the generosity of individual donors and corporate sponsors like Sherman’s. Over 120 beds were given away in 2019.

The WBRP also welcomes donations of sheets, blankets, and pillows. Due to limited office hours, donors are encouraged to call ahead (309-829-1200) to arrange for drop off or pick up of materials.

Applications are currently closed. The Bed Blitz committee will meet soon and hopes to hold the big event this fall. If you have any questions, please send an email to

Thanks to our sponsors and donors who make the Bed Blitz possible!
