Every year we donate over 3000+ Project Sleep Tight totes, free of charge, to homeless, foster care and refugee children across the country who need childhood essentials to feel cozy and significant.
Now to keep up with the every growing needs of the homeless population we rely heavily on community assistance. Local church groups, scouting organizations, clubs, businesses, schools etc. are what gives us the support we need to keep making a difference. With the efforts of communities across the nation we can continue to help children to feel more secure and give them a little piece of security that can make a huge difference.
Contact Project Sleep Tight today if your group would like to help make a difference! Please DO NOT start a collection or project without first contacting us to see what our current need is.
