What is A Bed for Every Child?
A Bed For Every Child is a nonprofit and a program of the Mass Coalition for the Homeless that strives to give children in need a new mattress, box spring, pillow, and set of linens so that they can get a good night's rest and be ready to follow their dreams in the morning.

What time do I need to arrive? 
Arrive 10 minutes before your shift. At each shift we will have builders at each bed station and runners helping those builders. Tasks are first come, first served.

What do I wear? 
Layer up! We will be working in a large, raw indoor space with limited heating. Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting a little dirty.

I want to volunteer with a friend, how do I sign up? 
You can register yourself for two spots or you can register individually.

I want to sign up my whole company. Can I do that?
Yes! Sign yourself up and then add your colleagues by adding additional registrations within the same event order. Note we have max 24 spots per hour.

Can my company volunteer in more than one shift? 
Yes. You can sign up for multiple shifts. You will need to register for each shift separately. For instance, sign up a group of people
