TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — On Saturday, 20 bunk beds will be constructed for kids in need.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a local non-profit that aims to help children sleep better while improving their health and happiness.

They build bunk beds to donate to families. Their mission is to make sure "no kid sleeps on the floor in our town."

John Cousins, the Tallahassee chapter president, said building the bunk beds is something anyone can do.

"You could be four-years-old, you could be 100-years-old, there's a task for everyone," said Cousins. "Eveyrone always says, 'oh well, I'm not a carpenter.' Well, no, but well teach you. We have the tools. Anyone who has a blue shirt, they know the process and will go through that."

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office is hosting All-in Leon Bunk Bed Build on Saturday at the Leon County Sheriff’s Office in Tallahassee.
