The recipient chosen for the 2019 show is Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP). SHP, founded in Kimberly, Idaho in 2012, is the ONLY charity providing hand-made beds to children who don't have beds of their own. SHP delivers beds and new bedding to kids in need, and partners with organizations, churches, businesses and individuals to build them. Every bed is handcrafted and constructed by volunteers willing to donate their time to help children in their community.
Volunteers are welcome to contact Bill Martindale of the Montrose chapter of SHP to get information on the next build day and help with the SHP mission: No kid sleeps on the floor in our town!
