BONNEVILLE News-Talk KIRO-F/SEATTLE's afternoon "RON AND DON SHOW" will team with the SEATTLE POLICE DEPARTMENT/SEATTLE POLICE FOUNDATION and client SLEEP TRAIN for the 2016 “Beds for Kids Project," with the aim to donate 150 mattresses, bedframes, sheet sets, comforters and pillows from "bed-in-a-box" brand THE DREAM BED to local children in need.
The project was created in 2014 by police officers JEREMY WADE and RYAN GALLAGHER after responding to a call where they found two girls having to sleep on the floor of their home; they paid for new beds for the girls from their own pockets and started the charity, which will be giving away beds to needy families on NOVEMBER 15th this year.
"Rest is so important, especially for kids as they’re learning and growing. It affects our health, happiness, success and ability to dream big," said SLEEP TRAIN Community Relations Supervisor JARRETT TOMALIN. “That's why we are thrilled to expand our community support by partnering with Beds for Kids and THE DREAM BED to ensure everyone has access to a great night's sleep."
“Officers WADE and GALLAGHER's work is one of the reasons I have kept a ‘blue light’ on in my heart,” said "RON AND DON SHOW" co-host DON O'NEILL. “With incredible partners like the SPD and SLEEP TRAIN, I’m sincerely proud to be a voice for this project.”
