MB-Winnipeg

About Our Chapter

Child bedlessness is a national problem, and as a national nonprofit with chapters spread across the country, SHP has provided the solution. We are a volunteer organization that builds beds for kids who are sleeping on the floor and there are multiple ways to get involved right here on our CAN-MB-Winnipeg page.

In Winnipeg, it is estimated that 13,000 of our children sleep on the floor – without a proper bed. With the help of volunteers, donors, and our partner organizations in the community, we are on a mission to ensure no child sleeps on the floor in our city, and this week’s build and donation drive is just the beginning.

Photos of deliveries are available for media use on this Google Drive URL.

Upcoming Events

Sleep in Heavenly Peace Winnipeg’s donation drive and public Build Day launches Saturday

SHP Winnipeg is holding a donation drive and Build Day, as we will build beds for Winnipeg kids in need.

Build Day will see our volunteers set up at various stations building beds, while our other volunteers will be managing the Drive-by Donation Drop-Off – collecting the following much need donations for future builds and deliveries:

  • new twin bedding/bed-in-a-bag
  • new pillows
  • new twin mattresses
  • lumbersupplies
  • cash or cheque

All donations will receive a charitable receipt. Physical distancing measures will be in place.

Though additional volunteers are not needed for this build, SHP Winnipeg is welcoming the public to come by, drop off a donation and learn more about SHP and future initiatives.
