Downtown Lunch Sept. 7 with Christanne Harrison, School Nutrition Expert

U.S. - Boston
Wed, Sep 7, 12:00 PM (EDT)

Bedlessness in Massachusetts "I've never had something that didn't belong before to someone else." That is what a boy said to me as I set up a new bed for him in a small apartment that he shared with his three siblings and another family of five. About 35,000 children in Massachusetts don't have a bed to sleep on at night.

About this event

Children in Massachusetts without beds share with their parents, sleep on a couch, on an air mattress, or even on a pile of blankets on the floor. The Sleep in Heavenly Peace Middlesex County Chapter is working to change this with a skeletal crew of volunteers. At this BYUMS event, learn more about what this organization does and why Christanne Harrison and her family choose to spend so many volunteer hours helping them.
