Buildin' Bunkz Initiative

We are getting geared up for our last Buildin' Bunkz day of the year on October 21!  Every bunk is composed of a kit so you don't need to be an expert builder...you just need a heart to serve.  We'll deliver and assemble 20 more bunks that morning to students in St. Charles who do not have an adequate place to sleep.  

We'll be constructing the kits at Jefferson Intermediate School and then delivering from there.  Interested in helping to deliver and build bunks? Click here to contact Nancy

Hear Jordan & Suzy's experience delivering bunkz.

Buildin' Bunkz Initiative

We are excited to share with you our new Buildin' Bunkz Initiative launched in collaboration with Care to Learn St. Charles and the St. Charles City School District. We are building and delivering bunk beds, mattresses, and bedding for children living in poverty and sleeping on the floor.  

On May 10th, 2017 all district 6th graders from Jefferson will be helping assemble beds, and put together the packages of bedding to be delivered as a whole-class community service day. 

The beds are completely FREE, but, there are 4 requirements for applying: 

  • children must live within the St. Charles City School District 
  • families must have a minimum of 2 children living within the home 
  • fall within certain income requirements (below 60% of the poverty line)
  • children must be in a compromised sleeping arrangement 

But we need your help!  We have created an online application that is available here or on our website for potential recipients to complete by May 9th, 2017 and we are asking that you to send this out to any families in the district who may be interested in applying and meets these requirements.
