Children Received Bed From Santa
The children of Wake County received a big surprise last holiday season after Romeo Brown Jr., Rest Assured Delivery Services’ owner together with his assistant Miller went around town to deliver the new beds, comforters, pillows and sheets to kids that do not have theirs.
Brown and Miller were able to make the deliveries with the help of two other employees from Rest Assured, namely, Michael McClain and Anthony Ward. The delivery was made in behalf of the Sweeter Dreams Beds Program. The sponsor of the said program was the Green Chair Project located in Capital Boulevard (downtown north) and has been doing this for five years.
According to the program coordinator of the project, Kerry Celestini, it was a great partnership as the delivery company is called Rest Assured while the program is called Sweeter Dreams.
The sponsorship was started by Jackie Craig, executive director of Green Chair, together with Beth Smoot more than five years ago. The nonprofit organization was then established in order to help those household who have been through crisis, recovering from natural disaster or is a victim of homelessness.
In a statement given by Craig while the delivery is ongoing, the nonprofit started in a closet. They took the initiative of giving away the stuff that they already have inside their closets but is unwilling to let go unless it will be given away for a good cause.
As of today, the Green Chair Project is located in a building that has a total of 27,000 square-foot land area. It is in partnership with more than 60 of the social service agencies that are scattered all over Wake County and it is manned by an army of volunteers in order to help thousands of households.
Craig added that in order to make them feel that their homelessness is over, household should have the all the necessary comforts provided by a home and this includes a bed wherein they can sleep and tables and chairs for them to eat as a family.
