Donated mattresses help needy children

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas - Some children will have a nicer place to lay their heads at night thanks to a program called, Sleepyhead Beds.

The goal of the program is to collect gently used mattresses for children who would otherwise go without.

Ryann Wilds, a volunteer organizer, said, “We take gently used mattresses with no stains or tears and we’re giving these beds to little kids so we want to be respectful of them and give them safe places to sleep.
After the beds are cleaned and organized, the group delivers them to families who need them.

The drive is sponsored by Project Change.
