MEDFORD, Ore. — The Family Nurturing Center has kicked off its Beds 4 Kids Drive. It started at the beginning of February and will go until the end of the month.
FNC provides services to high-risk families to make sure kids are raising in a safe and encouraging space.
Employees at the center say its imperative children have a bed to sleep on and a safe space to lay their heads at night.
Desirae Anthony, Development Coordinator says, “We often overlook the importance of a bed to a child. A bed in their home means they have a place to sleep safely. A bed is a symbol of permanency to these families, and is oftentimes required by social workers prior to a families reunification”.
Their goal is to raise $5,000. That money will go towards buying bed frames, mattresses, sheets, pillows, and box springs.
