LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The final bed build of the year for Sleep in Heavenly Peace was successful. The event was held in the Woodson Mall-Food City Center parking lot on Saturday morning. “We had close to 50 volunteers, and we built 40 beds,” said Bill Thompson, president of the local chapter of SHP.
“It’s the best thing I’ve been involved with,” said John Cain. Cain was at the first build just a few years ago and has been at nearly everyone since.
Cain and other volunteers cut, sanded, assembled and stained 40 beds in about two hours finishing up around lunch time.
