About Our Chapter
We pray that you and your family are healthy and will remain so. We are doing well but are saddened that we are not building beds for kids in southern Maryland. Our current wait list is 47. While our national organization made the very difficult decision to close all bed request lines until at least April 14, we anticipate that when they reopen our bed request line additional families will be added to our waitlist. So…once we get the okay from our national organization to build again, we will have a 20-bed build (most likely on a Saturday). In addition, when permitted we plan to open the shop on weekdays for volunteers to help us sand lumber. All opportunities to volunteer will be posted here and on our Facebook. We currently have enough lumber in the shop for 20 beds and want to purchase lumber for another 30 beds. PLEASE CONSIDER donating money for lumber. SEND checks or gift cards (preferably for lumber) to Sleep in Heavenly Peace, PO Box 1112, Lexington Park, MD 20653 or DONATE online here. Now more than ever our work is important. PLEASE HELP US to be prepared to meet the needs of those less fortunate in our community by DONATING FUNDS NOW. Thank you for believing in our mission and being the answer to our prayer. We hope to see you soon.
Child bedlessness is a problem. As a national nonprofit with chapters spread across the country, Canada, and Bermuda, SHP provides a solution. We are a 501(3)(c) volunteer organization that builds beds for kids ages 3-17 who do not have beds of their own. YOU can help our St. Mary's County Chapter!
