THE NEED

More than 2,500 beds will be requested by families in need in 2020.

Founded in 2012 in response to an overwhelming community need to get children into a bed of their own, Sweet Dream Makers delivers new beds, at no cost, to children and families sleeping on the floor, sharing beds, or sleeping in unsafe, unsanitary conditions.

Back to School Campaign

2020 Back to School Campaign
(July 15 – August 31, 2020)

Research has proven that sleep is critical for strong immune systems, stress reduction, and effective learning — and vitally important during COVID-19 — but students can’t get the sleep they need without having a bed of their own. That’s why Hands on Tzedakah (HOT) is matching the first $250 of every gift we receive — up to $25,000 — during our annual Back To School Campaign!
When you donate to our Back To School Campaign between now and August 31st, HOT will DOUBLE the first $250 of your gift to give an additional twin bed to students in need right here in Palm Beach County. A gift of $250 provides two beds, $500 provides three beds, $750 provides four beds, and so on!
LOOKING FORWARD TO THESE FUTURE EVENTS
