Sweet Dream In A Bag


May 2015

 Providing New Bedding, Caring

and Love to Children in Transition

Thank You Notes from Sweet Dream Moms:

"Thank you for everything you have done.  Me and my child appreciate everything and it is because of generosity  that my child can have a smile on her face!"  

"W.O.W (WITHOUT WORDS!)....and I'm so grateful.  What a blessing!  Thank you so much for this new bedding I am rebuilding my life for me and my 3 children after domestic violence and this new bedding & their little books are a great start to a new beginning! THANK YOU SO MUCH!"

Wonderful Packing Events

In the last month we have had a number of wonderful packing events.  We always have the normal "Pack & Pray" Event every 3rd Saturday(if you plan on coming to these -- please sign up or email Susie so we are ready for the proper number of volunteers)  these have been so well attended---just last week a youth group from Rising Star Missionary Baptist brought youth & adult sponsors and with all our regular packing volunteers there were over 50 people volunteering--- it was a wonderful morning!!!  There has also been two special Packing Events -- this is where we set up a packing party and the group provides at least half the needed bedding that will be packed for that day---what fun--- a wonderful ladies group (their 2nd year to do a special event) and the DTC Kiwanis sponsored Kiwanis One Day Packing Event with several Kiwanis clubs attending.  These special packing events are a great way to get people involved and with having to provide at least half the needed bedding, it gives groups the opportunity to have new bedding drives or fund raising to provide the needed funds.  It is so helpful to Sweet Dream to have these special events -- provides many more Sweet Dream Bags so we can bless more and more children!!  Give some thought to what groups you belong to and see if this summer you would like to schedule a "Special Packing Event"-- just call Susie 303-507-2098

“Volunteers don't get paid, 

not because they're worthless,

but because they're priceless.”

Possible New Opportunity

We are exploring the possibility of partnering with an agency that provides emergency shelter for under aged victims of Human Trafficking.  We hope to provide Sweet Dream Bedding Bags and comfort to these young teenagers as they heal mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Twin Sheet Sets Needed:
We are very short on twin sheet sets. Walmart has twin sheet sets for $9.96 in solid colors and BigLots have twin sheet sets for $10 in children type prints & bright solids! 

Free Office Needed:
For the past 5 years we have used our home as an office and just had a post office box at the UPS store so we had an actual address other than giving everyone our home address.  The time has come we need to OFFICE in a real space.  Since we are a 501(c)(3) charity it would be a tax write-off for anyone offering  us that small space.  We feel we have grown enough that we need an actual neutral location that we can meet with people and to have a separation from our home and our office work space.
Just give Wayne a call-303-507-1629.
