The Beaumont Elks Lodge 311 has donated $2,500 to Sleep In Heavenly Peace, Beaumont Chapter, for supplies to build bunk beds for kids in Hardin, Jefferson, and Orange counties.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) is a national non-profit with chapters spread across the country. SHP is a volunteer organization that builds beds for kids who are sleeping on the floor.
The local chapter in Beaumont is led by Jack Seely and his wife Charlotte.
The Beaumont Elks have been serving this community since 1895.
“It was a great discovery for us to find Sleep in Heavenly Peace here in Beaumont,” John Galvan, the Exalted Ruler (president) of the Beaumont Elks, said in a statement. “In addition to the donation for materials for new beds, the Elks are committing to sponsor a Beaumont Elks Bunk Bed Build Day next month with 40-50 volunteers from the Lodge and from other charitable groups related to us..”
Other groups agreed to help the Elks support the organization, like Red Knights Motorcycle Club, Stable Spirit of Vidor, Cowboy Church of Beaumont, the Boys Haven board of directors and Praise Church of Beaumont.
The donation to SHP was enabled by a gratitude grant from the Elks National Foundation, part of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.
