Members of the St. Michael-Albertville, Buffalo, Monticello and Rogers Rotary Clubs along with the Crisis Nursery and Family Youth Community Connections (FYCC) have teamed up to provide beds for kids who otherwise would not have a bed to sleep in.


There are hundreds of children in our area who sleep on a floor rather than in an actual bed.  Our clubs are working together to manufacture and assemble bed frames, including a headboard and a footboard, for these children in need.  We are providing these beds to the kids at no cost, but to the kids who get the beds they are priceless.  The children apply via Family Youth Community Connections (FYCC) who coordinates with Crisis Nursery, Rivers of Hope, Wright County Human Services, the School Districts of Wright County and the Rogers area for this program.


Rotary International provided a $6,000 grant and Slumberland provided 50 new mattresses through their “40 winks” grant program. The local Rotary Clubs have been successful in securing additional donations of wood, materials, bedding sets, plush animal toys and mattresses to help us stretch the dollars that our clubs can contribute to this very exciting project.

However, there is still a need and we would be happy to accept the donations of cash, bedding, pillows, sheet sets, blankets, and comforters provided the items are NEW. Anyone that would like more information about this project is welcome to contact any Rotarian from St. Michael-Albertville, Buffalo, Monticello or Rogers or Call Sandy from FYCC at (763) 416-7912.
