Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a non-profit in Jones County that provides beds for kids (ages 3-17) that do not have one. We are having a community build on January 12th at Welter Storage in Monticello. This is where the community comes together to build those beds. All ages and experiences are welcome. This is a wonderful way for kids to get Silver Cord or volunteer hours, while also giving back to their community. If anyone is interested in participating, the link to sign up is: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050f4aa5a62fa5fa7-shpcommunity3 If a student should need a bed, fill out an application form at: https://www.shpbeds.org/request-free-twin-bed
