B8 May 4, 2017 THE HART COUNTY NEWS-HERALD By RAYNA GLASS Members of the community came together Saturday, April 29 and worked together to build 25 beds for students in Barren County, Caverna, and Glasgow school districts. While the Build-A- Bed project began at a statewide level in 2009, this year marked its fifth year locally. All materials used were raised and all work completed was done so strictly through donations and volunteers. Youth groups, schools, and clubs got involved raising money and volunteering time and manpower. Elementary Schools hosted Spring Flings and Change for Change to raise money for materials. "It's eye opening and it helps you to be more appreciative," said Terry Smith ATEAM/ Americorps member on the importance of involving students in community projects, like Build-A-Bed. At 8 a.m. Saturday morning the work began with a job for all ages. Younger students who volunteered wrote encouraging messages on the boards of the bed frame under the mattresses for the recipients, while others worked to put the frames together, load the frames and mattresses to be delivered, and organized the "bedtime baskets" that went along with the bed. Each bed was accompanied by a basket filled with sheets, pillows, a stuffed animal, hygiene items, and a night-light. After nearly two hours of hard work 25 beds had been completed, with lumber left over. "We have lumber for five more, so we will have the resources for five more if we find any students in the summer that are in need of a bed," said Americorps member Donna Morgan. Beds were delivered that day to students. Smith, alongside Lisa Pack at Barren County High School organized the event. In 2009 when Build- A-Bed began it was the hope of its founders that giving a child their own bed would be a difference maker, instilling confidence and pride, and even making a positive impact on their school work. That hope remains the same for those who worked diligently with Build- A-Bed to make sure that children in Barren County, Caverna, and Glasgow schools have not only a comfortable place to lay their heads a night, but a confidence boost to take on school. Mattie Mansfield and Sarah Faith Hensley, students of Barren County, work to complete a bed to be delivered later that day. Hensley wrote the encouraging words pictured on the panels that will hold the mattress in place. Shtndalwa Fleet Week discounts apply only during I~e dealer ~ window date.
