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. In 2019, we gave away over 120 beds and in 2021, we gave away 110 beds. 

Bed Blitz 2022 is scheduled for Saturday, October 8 at YouthBuild. Stay tuned for more information about volunteering and donating!
