The Lynnfield Rotary hosted “Build A Bed” on Saturday, May 21, District 7930’s Day of Service.  We worked with “A Bed For Every Child,” a Lynn based initiative of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless providing beds for needy children in Essex County.
Over forty volunteers took part in an event which produced ten beds for the community. 
Bed building teams were provided with lumber, hardware, tools, varnish and detailed instructions to produce the beds.  After 2 hours they proudly displayed the beds that were constructed.  Everyone had a wonderful time and went home knowing that ten children were going to have a bed of their own.
We wish to thank all of those who sponsored the building of a bed as well as the “builders” who joined us for this project as well as our fellow Rotarians from Ipswich, Methuen, Somerville and Wakefield for your support of this project.  Special thanks to Lynnfield Fire Chief Glenn Davis for assistance with the use of the Firehouse parking area.
A Bed For Every Child receives about 250 requests per month for beds for children.
The Lynnfield Rotary Club, established in 1963 has a history of active service in our community and around the world.
