Beds for Kids

In the North Texas area, too many children lack proper beds for sleeping. Some are lucky enough to sleep on the family couch; others must sleep on the floor. To alleviate this problem, the S.M. Wright Foundation established the Beds for Kids Center in early 2010, and it is now a nonprofit bed distributor in North Texas. The center’s objective is to give disadvantaged children the opportunity to get a good night’s sleep by providing them with new twin or full bed sets.
