Beds for Kids Celebrated its 10 Years Anniversary

The Hornet's Nest

CHARLOTTE, NC - "Can you imagine bedtime without a bed?" is the question that co-founders of Beds for Kids Daniel Fogarty, Brandon Holmes and Tim Rowley go by. That question has brought Beds for Kids to its 10 years anniversary.

On August 16, Beds for Kids celebrated its 10 years anniversary in conjunction with the grand opening of the new warehouse. The three co-founders were there the lead the warehouse ribbon cutting ceremony. Vi Lyles, the City of Charlotte Mayor, was also there to give some remarks about the Beds for Kids and the contributions the organization has made for Charlotte.

The move to the new warehouse was possible thanks to the help of 320 volunteers from Atrium Health, Factory Church, Charlotte Fire Department cadets, Ashley Homestore, and more. The new warehouse is located on Barringer Road and it has a bigger space to store more furnitures. Some of the volunteers were presented with an award during the celebration.

Fogarty, Holmes, and Rowley's experience of delivering home furnitures to a family who had just moved out from a shelter and into a permanent house inspired the three to establish the non-profit organization and has been providing beds and other home furnitures to those who are in need since.

Beds for Kids accepts home furnitures and monetary donations. After receiving a referral from agency's social worker, the team will prepare and deliver the requested furnitures to the family, set them up inside the house, and let the family have a good night sleep. To put it in their words, "You donate, we deliver, they dream".
