In the North Texas area, too many less fortunate children lack proper beds to sleep in. 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. It is now a non-profit bed distributor in North Texas. The objective of the center is to give disadvantaged children the opportunity to get a good night’s sleep by providing new twin or full bed sets.
To qualify, a family must complete an application and show proof of income (if any) and residency, provide a valid birth certificate for each child, and meet federal poverty guideline requirements. After the application has been processed and approved. The family will be issued a ticket to pick up their mattress set at the foundation warehouse distribution days.
From the beginning, the demand has far exceeded the Foundation’s ability to supply beds. There is still a long waiting list of 1,200+ kids. Since its inception, the distribution center distributed over 20,000 mattress sets to underprivileged kids in the North Texas community. A $185.00 sponsorship for a child in need will go to a new twin bed set which includes a frame, box spring, and mattress. For teenagers, we have a $240 sponsorship level which includes a full bed set that includes a frame, box spring and mattress.
Please help the S.M. Wright Foundation purchase more beds for our kids who need help by making a donation today.
