Imagine kids sleeping on a hard, cold floor each night. Unfortunately, that is the reality for far too many children in our community. For a kid, a bed is more than a piece of furniture. It’s a place to bounce, to launch superhero flights, and ultimately a comfortable place to snuggle
under the covers for a good night’s rest. Adequate sleep directly impacts kids’ physical and mental health and enhances their focus and learning at school. Kids also benefit from having a place to call their own; it increases their responsibility and independence.
You can be a part of providing a comfortable bed to kids who need them! We are partnering with My Very Own Bed, a local non-profit that provides new beds and linens to children in families who have recently moved out of homelessness into more stable housing in the Twin Cities.
With each new bed, My Very Own Bed provides a Dream Kit, which includes NEW, twin-size:
- Mattress pads
- Blankets or comforters
- Small stuffed animals
You may drop these items off near the front desk at Mini Hops at the My Very Own Bed Donation bin.
If you prefer to shop online, you may purchase Dream Kit items from any store of your choice and ship to My Very Own Bed at 34 13th Ave. NE B002A, Minneapolis, MN 55413. For ideas or to purchase and ship directly, see My Very Own Bed’s registries:
Be sure to add Mini Hops to the order so that My Very Own Bed can record your donations as part of our drive.
