Two girls received a bed, mattress, and sheets. It was unicorn themed.

This also marks the group’s ninth month serving the area.

They get donations and partner with businesses to make this possible.

Organizers say they are glad to give back to children in need.

“For a child, we deliver for ages 3 to 17, for a child to be able to get a good night sleep, it is probably going to make a very big difference in how they do in school,” Patty Champion said.
