Walmart Joins Effort to Provide “BED’R HOMES FOR KIDS”

Picture of group with pillows and beddingIt is an effort to make sure Jordan School District students and families sleep a little easier at night. The Jordan Education Foundation launched a new project called “BED’R HOMES FOR KIDS.” The goal is to provide 200 new twin beds for students and families in need.

Now Walmart is stepping in to help. This week representatives from more than a dozen stores showed up to donate bedding, warm blankets and pillows to go along with the beds.

Getting beds to students who may have never had one, will give them a chance at a good night’s sleep and help them to better concentrate in class at school.

Thank you to Walmart and everyone involved in this project, which will improve the lives of students and local families in our communities.
