Sleep in Heavenly Peace Build Day
“We’re builders — We build up businesses and we build up people. Now we’re building beds to help the kids in our community get a better night’s sleep!
A good night’s sleep is important, especially for kids. When we heard there was an organization building beds for kids who don’t have them, we wanted to be a part of that.”
– Randall Meinen, CEO of Qualbe Marketing Group
On Saturday, October 27, 2018, we hosted a “Build Day” at our office warehouse. Our employees and their families built 39 beds for children in need in Dallas-Fort Worth, partnering with the organization Sleep in Heavenly Peace.
“The event was great; we had a very good turn out,” said Randall Meinen, Founder and CEO of Qualbe Marketing Group. “When we work together as a team, it’s amazing how much we can get done. Everyone worked really hard and had their own spot and station – from sanding to drilling to cutting the wood…we had an assembly line going.”
We raised $6,500 to fund the event, which was our goal, thanks to Careington International, Mosaic Church and Qualbe employees who donated to the event.
Each bed was assembled and will be delivered to an appreciative home in DFW, complete with mattresses, pillows and bedding.
According to Dallas News, one in five children in North Texas live in poverty, many of whom are without a bed of their own. A good night’s sleep is important for everyone, but especially children:
“When kids get the sleep they need, they may have a lower risk of becoming overweight and developing diabetes as well as fewer learning problems and attention issues. Sleep is as important as nutrition and exercise.” — Parents.com
