We believe every child deserves a restful night’s sleep in their own bed. That’s why during this holiday season, we’re proud to again partner 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 Friday, December 17, we are collecting cash donations at all our branches to help make this dream a reality.
In 2011, 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 facilitate the healthy sleep children need to learn and succeed.
Every $250 equals a “Comforts of Home” package that provides sheets, blankets, pillows and oral hygiene kits. Every $350 allows for a “Bed Buddy” package, which provides one child with a complete bed set.
Let’s join together to make sure all children have a warm and comfortable place to sleep each night. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
