children's Bed project

The Children’s Bed Project began in 2014 with the mission of providing a bed and bedding for all elementary students in San Angelo Independent School District who are in need of a bed.  SAISD personnel help to identify the students and provide vouchers to parents to redeem for beds and bedding.  Rust Street Ministries provides warehouse space and distribution of beds and bedding. 

During our first school year, 238 beds were given to children in need and over 1,400 beds have been given since the project began. The project also provides beds to Child Protective Services as needed.    Sierra Vista church staff and volunteers provide all administrative duties. One hundred percent of every dollar given goes directly to provide a bed or bedding.
