Build a Bed 11 10

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (11/10/17) — Thirty Hopkins County children will receive their very own beds thanks to the local Rotary Build a Bed program volunteers.

Organizers said this year, the need has increased from 25 to 30 new beds. The Madisonville Rotary Club worked with Hopkins County Family Resource centers to identify children in need. Each child will also receive accessories including a mattress, set of sheets, comforter, pillow, blanket, toiletries and an age-appropriate book.

The Rotary Club along with Hopkins County Homebuilders Association members are spending the weekend getting the furniture ready for deliveries on Nov. 17. The homebuilders have already spent a day cutting, sanding and assembling beds. They will be staining and coating the wood with polyurethane over the next two days.

Rotary Public Relations Spokeswoman Summer Crick said the club’s unique idea was recognized throughout Rotary International. The local club received a grant from Rotary District No. 6710 to help fund the project launched three years ago.
