As a company dedicated to supporting the community in which we do business, we’re always looking for ways to help deserving organizations through our time and resources. Recently, we had the privilege of sponsoring a fundraiser to benefit Sweet Dreamzzz, a nonprofit organization committed to improving children’s health, well-being and academic performance by providing sleep education and bedtime essentials to economically disadvantaged students and their families.
Associated General Contractors of America's Michigan Chapter raised $6,500 to support Sweet Deramzzz’s mission. It’s things we take for granted—like a toothbrush, blanket, pillow—that many children in our community don’t have. The lack of necessary tools for a good night’s sleep contributes to a lack of growth and development, healthy brain function and emotional well-being.
Funds raised from this event will go toward future sleep education programs. Students in the program receive a brand new sleeping bag or Sweet Dreamzzz blanket, a Sweet Dreamzzz t-shirt, toothbrush, toothpaste, teddy bear and bedtime charts with stickers.
