Local Project – The Need Remains
This week we are highlighting the offerings that would have been taken at Convention. Remember even though our Convention 2020 had to be canceled, the need remains for so many of these notable organizations.Note from the Editor: The giving time for this convention offering has ended.
To read how you can continue to give to these offerings please read this post.
Local Project: Sleep in Heavenly Peace
Every year the Convention Committee chooses a local group to highlight, and for attendees to learn about and share our blessings with. This year was to be Sleep in Heavenly Peace of Rochester, NY. Sleep in Heavenly Peace, also known as SHP, helps children in need to sleep better, one bed at a time.
“Those at SHP fully believe that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support that child needs. When it was brought to our attention the need for beds went far beyond our own neighborhoods, we stepped up and took initiative. SHP is a national organization answering the call to a national problem working one city and town at a time.”
The Rochester, NY branch had just started rolling out beds before the onset of COVID-19. Through our donations we will be getting in on the ground floor of this organization as we raise funds for the bedding they need to be given with each bed.
Please remember these worthy organizations during this time of need. Just as we would have asked at Convention, we are asking you now to consider if you can help even a little.
You can give online or by mail, further information can be found in this post. Note from the Editor: The giving time for this 2020 convention offering has ended.
