Sleep In Heavenly Peace-Skip Sevier
As with any volunteer organization, pretty much all the time.
We operate out of our home, off Highway 9, above Hwy 136,
In February of 2018, Veronica and Skip Sevier saw an episode of ''Returning the Favor'', a show Mike Rowe produces on Facebook. Mike and his crew were in Twin Falls, Idaho, interviewing a group of people building beds for kids in a drafty cinder block building. You can view the episode here:
Immediately touched by the story (in 2017, SHP had nine chapters and built 784 beds), the couple contacted the SHP headquarters in Twin Falls, signed up for training (online first, then Skip traveled to Twin Falls) and qualified to establish Sleep In Heavenly Peace GA-Dawsonville in June of 2018.
As of October, 2018, there were 106 local SHP chapters and nationwide, they've built over 1900 beds!
We provide (at no charge) sturdy, well-made wooden beds, mattresses, pillows and linens to families with children ages 3 to 17 in our local area.
Do you know of a kid who needs a bed? Please apply at: https://www.shpbeds.org/request-bed

Thank you so much for your interest!
