“EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A BED TO SLEEP IN AT NIGHT!"
Two students from First United Methodist Church Boerne saw there were children in our community who do not have a comfortable bed to sleep on - some sleep on the floor and some have no pillow or blanket. Their quote led to the start of the Bunk Bed Ministry in 2018, and to date they have provided bunk beds for 65 children!
FUND THE BUNKS! (Bunk Beds that is!)
The Jones’ CHRISTmas Lights, the Boerne Community Coalition (BCC), and Blessings in a Backpack joined together to help the Bunk Bed Ministry provide BRAND NEW bunk beds and bedding for 60 Boerne area children in 2020! Through donations to our FUND THE BUNKS! (Bunk Beds that is!) GoFundMe Campaign, The Jones' CHRISTmas Lights, and The Bunk Bed Ministry, we have exceeded our $14,000 goal for 2020! THANK YOU to all who have donated (and are considering!).
NOW IT'S TIME TO BUILD THE BUNKS! (Bunk Beds that is!)
Information about The Bunk Bed Ministry was recently sent out to families, and the children of 25 families are now on the waiting list to receive Bunk Beds! We NEED YOUR HELP to give these children a comfortable bed and a good night's sleep!
Teams will help build 1 or 2 sets of bunks per home, as assigned. Each team will consist of 2 adults plus 2 others age 10+ (can be adults) who can follow directions and assist with the build. Smaller children are welcome to come along with parental supervision, but please consider that we are guests in a home and space can be very tight. The 3-hour window is based on an average 2-bed assembly.
MEETING SPOT is at First United Methodist Church Boerne, 205 James St., in the middle parking lot next to the Family Life Center at Noon. Final instructions will be given and materials loaded into transport vehicles.
TOOLS are helpful to bring but not necessary. The beds are easily assembled with a set of Allen Wrenches, or for those who are handy, you may prefer a Power Drill.
TRUCKS OR LARGE SUV'S are big enough to transport the mattress, frame, and bedding. It is not necessary, but if you have one and are willing to transport the bedding, please signup in the "Team Truck/Large SUV" slot.
SIGNUP BELOW for the next BUILD THE BUNKS (Bunk Beds that is!) date. Your Team will be contacted by the Bunk Bed Ministry prior to the build date. If your Team feels more comfortable with a seasoned partner, please let them know and one will be assigned to your Team.Additional dates will be added when builds are scheduled. Watch for new Signups! Students will earn service hours.
DONATIONS can be made through our GoFundME "Fund the Bunks! (Bunk Beds that is!)" or directly to the Bunk Bed Ministry at First United Methodist Church.
