Omaha — May 21, 2021 – 100.7 KGBI partnered with non-profit Sleep in Heavenly Peace in April to provide bedding for Omaha children and teens.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace estimates that 14,000 kids in the Omaha metro area don’t have their own bed. The organization works with volunteers and donors to build and deliver twin beds to help fulfill their mission: No kid sleeps on the floor in our town.
KGBI wanted to help equip as many of those beds as possible. Listeners responded with 561 sets of sheets, 78 complete bed sets, 50 pillows, and more! The donations resulted in more than $12,000 worth of supplies to help complete these beds.
“We knew the generous KGBI listening family would care deeply about kids and teens who are sleeping on the couch or floor and want to help,” said KGBI Listener Engagement Director Jill Tracey. “The response has been overwhelming. We are grateful to be even a small part of the incredible service Sleep in Heavenly Peace provides for families in the Omaha Metro every day!”
