Draft Night and Donation Drive: My Very Own Bed
During draft night, we’re donating $1 from every tap pour to this month’s Cooperates partner, My Very Own Bed.
My Very Own Bed has one goal: to provide new beds to children moving into stable housing. In addition to a new bed, they put together Dream Kits that contain sheets, blanket, pillow, mattress pad, stuffed animal, and book. If you’d like to bring a contribution to the taproom, we’re looking for new, twin-size:
● Mattress pads
● Blankets or comforters
● Small stuffed animals
ABOUT MY VERY OWN BED
My Very Own Bed has one goal: to provide new beds to children moving into stable housing. By 2022, they’ve provided more than 4,000 beds and Dream Kits to children ages 2-17 in the Twin Cities and surrounding suburbs. My Very Own Bed provides a new bed, set of sheets, blanket, pillow, mattress pad, stuffed animal, and book to children who might otherwise go without. The impact is immediate; improving where and how children sleep improves their overall health and well being.
