This is a hands-on outreach opportunity for families with kids, individuals, clubs, teams, youth groups, or work groups to assemble dream kits and help deliver beds and dream kits to children in our community in need of beds..


Volunteers will meet at our office for a short orientation and to pack kits and then follow our van to families’ homes

Where: 34 13th Ave NE Minneapolis, MN 55413 (Parking available) 


When: 9:00 a.m. – noon, Fridays and Saturdays


Group Size: 2-4 


Ages: All ages including kids ages 5+




Volunteers also help us collect needed supplies for our "dream kits" - the pillow, mattress pads, sheets, blankets, and stuffed animal that accompany each bed. You can host an in-person or virtual drive in your neighborhood, school, church, or work community.

These blankets accompany a new, twin-sized bed and other “dream kit” items to make the bed comfortable – sheets, pillow, mattress pad, book and stuffed animal. This is a great activity for groups of all ages. We ask the blanket dimensions be 58"x 90." 

It was very rewarding to see the joy and pure happiness on the faces of these kids and their families when we were putting those beds together for them.

"I saw firsthand how a bed can give these kids a sense of pride, this (bed) is mine.
