Overland Park, KS – January 11, 2022 – Listeners to Life 88.5 KJNW-FM Kansas City have stepped up to help make sure area children have a warm place to sleep. Thousands of area children don’t have a bed, or bedding. Life 88.5 partnered with volunteers from Sleep in Heavenly Peace KC Southeast to provide a solution.
More than 300 kids in Kansas City received beds for the very first time. Life 88.5 listeners helped to furnish the beds with 275 sheet sets, 192 pillows, 129 blankets and comforters, and more. In addition to the items, listeners raised over $8,000 to help meet expenses.
“Life 88.5 listeners were an incredible blessing again this year.” said Scott Foster, President of Sleep in Heavenly Peace KC Southeast. “Hundreds of kiddos around Kansas City are being blessed because of our amazing community.”
2021 marked the third year of this partnership.
