On Make a Difference Day, Build a Bed for a Child Leaving Homelessness

MADD BC LOGOJoin us for Make a Difference Day 2015 as we build beds for toddlers in need and fulfill a basic need that most of us take for granted—a bed.

Children without beds can have lowered self-esteem, ability to learn, and a reduced likelihood of graduating from high school. Beds are distributed through agency partners to families with children transitioning out of homelessness and foster care.

Boston Cares has worked with skilled furniture makers to develop a simple bed design and assembly process that allows volunteers with minimal training or experience to produce beds that are attractive, sturdy, and easy to assemble. Volunteers love it!
