Around 3% of the children in San Antonio do not have a bed to sleep in, most sleep on the floor or share a small space with sibling. While 3% doesn't sound like a lot it equates to over 70,000 children. 
Sleep in Heavenly Peace builds bunkbeds for these children. When a bed is delivered it also includes full new bedding. 
Rotary Club of San Antonio South volunteered on Saturday, September 23 to help build beds for children in the San Antonio area.
The Rotary Club of San Antonio South members laid sod with new homeowners, Saturday, July 22, at a new Habitat for Humanity home. We are excited for our forever home to be complete in August, said the couple.
