A good night’s sleep is essential for children’s health, growth and development, and it’s something we believe every child deserves. That’s why we are again partnering with the Pioneer Valley Chapter of the Cooperative Credit Union Association to help provide A Bed for Every Child right here in our own communities. Through May 31, we are collecting cash donations at all our branches to help provide sweet dreams for area children.
This effort began in 2011 when the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless learned that many public school students were not getting enough sleep because they did not have their own beds. In response, they launched A Bed for Every Child with a mission to help children get the restful sleep they need to learn and succeed. To date, more than 14,250 children have been helped.
Every $350 allows for a “Bed Buddy” package, which provides one child with a complete bed set. We are accepting donations of any amount. With your help, we can help make sure all children have a warm and comfortable place to dream every night. Thank you in advance!
