Seniors Participate in Service Project

Seniors worked together to build 30 beds for children in Chattanooga who don't have a regular place to sleep. Notre Dame was able to donate $3,000 for building materials and bedding due to many kind donors. 

“I think it’s a great opportunity for the seniors to be able to better our community. I think that we’re really blessed to be able to do this and that our school is willing to let us be able to do this,” said high school senior Sarah Moore.

 
Sleep in Heavenly Peace has chapters all over the country, including Chattanooga, to help build and distribute beds to children in their communities.
 

The slogan for the organization is “No kid sleeps on the floor in our town!” Having a comfortable bed can affect a child’s well being. Many of the kids the group helps either sleep in a bed with several family members, on a couch or the floor.

 
 

They’re concerned there’s an even greater need for beds due to the COVID-19 pandemic with many people losing their jobs and homes.
