The local chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace is taking part in a national event this Saturday called Bunks Across America.  The Sleep in Heavenly Peace organization builds beds for kids in need in the Riverbend, and this Saturday invites the public to help with the national goal of building 8-thousand beds.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace Alton chapter founder Jason Brunaugh tells the Big Z they’ve developed a great partnership with the Alton Lowe’s Home Improvement store, but hopes the public will come out to help for part of Saturday:

There will be two sessions on Saturday on the parking lot of Lowe’s, from 9-Noon, then again from 1-4pm and you can work for however long you like.  You’re asked to bring your own water, and dress for sunny and warm weather.  All tools and supplies will be provided, along with guidance from volunteer leaders.  The Gulf Shores Restaurant Food Truck will be on site starting at 11:30am.
