Volunteers help build beds for Sleep in Heavenly Peace to help children in need

An army of people wielding wood sanders behind Baggett Elementary School sounded like the world’s largest, loudest beehive. The volunteers manning them were busy as bees carrying out their task in the assembly line on Oct. 26.

About 200 volunteers were working behind the elementary school to build kits for roughly 100 bunk beds that will be sent to families with children who don’t have beds of their own.
