CHARLOTTE, NC- Beds for Kids revealed that thousands of children sleep without a bed or on the floor every night. The non-profit organization invites Charlotteans to help kids and families get the proper furniture to continue their lives.

On their 10 years anniversary, Beds for kids encourages Charlotteans to do their share of serving the community. After starting Beds for Kids as a non-profit organization in 2011, one of the co-founders, Daniel Fogarty realized that 10 years later, thousands of children are unable to sleep on a bed and forced to sleep on the floor every night.

Beds for Kids revealed that in 2021, there are 1,538 individuals impacted by this movement with 1,100 beds and other furniture with a total of 9,812 delivered to the needed household.

Joining as the key speaker of 10 year anniversary, Executive Director Malcolm Graham expressed his gratitude towards staff and volunteers who carry on the mission to this day. Graham revealed moving the warehouse of Beds for Kids just weeks before the pandemic was one of the big challenges that the organization has to face. Graham thanked 350 volunteers who made it happened.

“Imagine moving a house… Now imagine moving a whole warehouse,” said Graham.
