Sleep in Heavenly Peace of Chippewa County
Child bedlessness is a national problem, and as a national nonprofit with chapters spread across the country, SHP has provided the solution. They are a volunteer organization that builds beds for kids who are sleeping on the floor and there are multiple ways to get involved right here on our WI-Chippewa Co page.
So many great charities provide clothing, meals, and toys to families in need. But as wonderful as this aid is, few organizations offer suitable beds and bedding to the kids in these families.
At SHP, they fully believe that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support that a child needs. When it was brought to their attention that the need for beds went far beyond our own neighborhoods, they stepped up and took initiative.
If a child needs a bed, they want to make sure they get one. No kid sleeps on the floor in our town.
From those humble beginnings, today they serve over 500 families each week and distribute more than 1.1 million pounds of food annually.

In 1979, St. Francis Food Pantry began by offering spare food to those in need from a garage at Sacred Heart Hospital – initially serving 10-15 families each week.
For our first “WAXX Cares” project in the month of August- WNB Financial & WAXX 104.5 are teaming up to help We Care Eau Claire!

It’s a big undertaking…But, together we can each do a little, or a lot, to help!
