Sleep in Heavenly Peace Helps the Community One Bed at a Time

Kenosha, WI – The Kenosha Kingfish are proud to be a part of the community here in Kenosha. There are plenty of great organizations that contribute to admirable causes, and Sleep in Heavenly Peace is one which stands out. Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a non-profit group that builds and delivers single beds, complete with mattresses, bedding, and a pillow to kids between 3 and 17 years old who do not have a proper bed to sleep in.  Since the founding of the Racine/Kenosha Chapter in 2018, 727 beds have been delivered to kids in the area.

 

If you, or anyone you, know are interested in learning more about this organization, then be sure to come out to the Kingfish game this Saturday as members of Sleep in Heavenly Peace will be in attendance. Fans can purchase a discounted ticket for Saturday’s game using the promo code “SHP”.

With over 75 kids on the waiting list, and new requests coming in, there is still work left to do. For additional information, please contact Sleep in Heavenly Peace at wi-racine-kenosha@shpbeds.org.  To request a bed, fill out the request at https://www.shpbeds.org/request-free-twin-bed. We look forward to seeing all of our fans at the game this Saturday, and we hope Historic Simmons Field will be used as a platform to spur on this great mission.
