A Bed 4 Me Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to ensure that children have a place of their own to sleep each night. We understand the critical role of sleep in a child's development, health, academic performance and self-esteem. A Bed 4 Me qualifies each child and provides a bedding kit at no cost to the families. Our foundation addresses this essential need as we believe every child deserves a bed.
A Bed 4 Me Foundation serves children ages 2-18 from low to middle income families within the Okaloosa County area. After a referral and introductory visit are completed, we provide new bedding (twin mattress, bed frame, pillow, sheet and comforter set) to children who do not have beds due to economic struggles and lack of financial resources as well as displaced families starting over due to domestic issues.
Our teams have found children sleeping on floors, sofas, recliners, floor pallets or crammed into beds with siblings or parents. You can touch the life of a child in one moment that will carry on for years to come by providing a place for them to sleep, dream and feel cherished. Be the change that child needs by donating to and volunteering with our foundation.
Sign up to hear from us about events, news and bigger dreams!
Thank you for supporting the dreams of children in our community. Each donation helps us reach the goal of $250 for a new bed kit. Keep dreaming with us!
