FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Sherilyn Lackey says it's hard for people to notice that some children are struggling to sleep at night.
Lackey, LaGrange chapter president of Sleep in Heavenly Peace, the national non-profit that builds and delivers beds to children who don't have them, says, "We are all just here to help one another and sometimes we just need to open our eyes to see what's going on."
Volunteers joined the Fort Wayne and LaGrange chapters of Sleep in Heavenly Peace at Lowe's on Lima Rd. Sunday morning.
The nonprofit teamed with Lowe's for their 'Heroes' project to build 100 beds for children across the region without a bed to sleep in.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace's Fort Wayne Chapter President Keith Hickey says the COVID-19 pandemic caused a lapse in the organization's progress over the past 6 months, but they'll continue building through difficulties.
"We're just getting to where people are opening their homes back up to us and we're able to deliver," said Hickey.
He says the organization plans to have 180 beds delivered to children by Christmas.
