Frequently Asked Questions

Volunteering

How do Chapter Presidents keep track of their volunteers?

Volunteers register for attendance to an event in a form on the event page on the website. They are then managed in Hubspot, SHPs customer relationship management software (CRM).

Do I need experience to help build beds?

There is no experience required to become a volunteer and build beds. During a Build Day event, trained volunteers will be available to help anyone with the construction process, ranging from drilling, sanding, measuring, staining, etc.

We have a great How to Build an SHP Bunkbed Video. Check out our Facebook page and testimonials — even people with no building experience at all are soon able to help their community by building bunk beds for children.

Can I bring a child to help build beds?

On the page labeled Volunteer, you will see the process and requirements for attending a Build day and help build beds. Due to the nature of the environment and the tools used during the building process, volunteers must be at least 12 years of age and accompanied by their legal guardian.

Donations

I don’t want to put my credit card on the Internet. How can I donate?

Although we make every attempt to ensure that your credit card information is processed safely through PayPal’s secure gateway, if you prefer not to put your credit card information online, you can also donate by check or by mailing a prepaid gift card to Wal-Mart, Lowes, or any other retailer where materials are applicable.

You can donate by making out a check to:

Sleep in Heavenly Peace
P.O. Box 116
Kimberly, ID 83341

You can also mail gift cards to the above address.

Can I donate pillows, bedding, lumber, etc?

Absolutely. A bed is not complete without bedding. Each bunk bed is made to fit a normal twin sized mattress and is delivered with a complete set of bedding, including mattress, mattress cover, pillow, pillow case, fitted sheet, flat sheet and as supplies last, comforters. If you want to donate any materials or bedding, please contact us via phone or email to get more details or see our Sponsor a Bed – Materials List for items needed to complete a single bunk.

How will my monetary donation be spent?

100% of any and all donations are used in the purchase, assembly, development, materials, delivery, and organization of the beds. We have no paid employees, and it is the donations we receive that determine the number of beds we are able to deliver.
