Buckeye Community Bank employees recently built beds to support the efforts of Good Knights of Lorain County. The Amherst-based organization believes that a child’s good night’s sleep is essential to their health, academic success and growth.
The Buckeye team took part in helping the group positively impact the community during two of its build days. The volunteers assisted in building the bed frames, which another group of volunteers will deliver with mattresses in the coming weeks. Good Knights also provides each kid with a pillow, sheet set and blanket when the bed is delivered and assembled.
“We enjoyed helping Good Knights of Lorain County in their efforts to assist local families,” Buckeye President Ben Norton said. “We applaud their focus on creating brighter futures for local children with a foundation built on a good night’s sleep.”
Research shows that sleep is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. Kids who get adequate sleep have better attention, learning skills and overall mental and physical health. This fantastic local non-profit organization provides beds to children from low-income families.
