The Bed Project

About the Mission.

Wakefield UMC established this mission in January 2023. Sleep is essential for overall physical and mental health. A bed is a basic need; however, this is an unmet need in our area. For example, we are aware that children may be sleeping on the floor or sharing a bed with their sibling. Wakefield UMC has an opportunity to serve by building twin beds and providing a mattress, sheets, blanket and pillow to ensure these children sleep comfortably.

The need and volunteer responses were so great that by March 2023, Wakefield UMC built a total of 20 beds and delivered them to homes in Granville County, Nash County, and Franklin County.
