About The Event
Our general member meetings occur the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Due to the current COVID-19 prohibition on gatherings, we have moved our meetings online.
Please join us on Zoom on Tuesday, July 14th. Folks can gather at 6:30 to chat, and our presentation will begin at 7pm.
For this meeting, we will be meeting our new 2020-2021 Leadership Team. The new club president will discuss plans and goals for the year ahead. Come to this meeting to find out what our club has in store, and to contribute your ideas for how we can create positive change in the South Metro.
Our speaker, Michael Allen, comes from My Very Own Bed. My Very Own Bed's mission is to provide new beds and linens to children of families that have recently secured stable housing. My Very Own Bed was created to help families get one step closer to thriving in their new homes. By providing beds and linens to kids who need them, we’re making those new homes more livable and restful. By making sure the beds and linens are new, we’re giving kids and families something all their own — not a hand-me-down. The impact from a bed provides children who experienced homelessness a comfortable, safe place to sleep. In doing so, children and families will experience the benefits of sleep which can include improved attendance and increased performance at school, and the ability to maintain attention and emotional stability. My Very Own Bed’s mission is to provide new beds to children ages 2-17 in families who have recently moved into more stable housing in the Twin Cities metro area. With each bed, we also provide a “dream kit,” which includes a set of sheets, a pillow, a mattress pad, a book, a blanket, and a stuffed animal.
