Imagine being a child and not having a bed to sleep on. Your only bed is a pile of clothes on the floor or just a blanket on the floor. This is simply a fact of life for some children and this is something that the Family Resource Center (FRC) is working to change.
The faith-based branch of FRC started the program of providing beds for these children and the blessings and program have grown. Staff and volunteers work in the donated space owned by Jacob Cunningham of Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Baldwyn to build the wooden frames and are active in seeking partners, volunteers, and donations of bedding items and funds to keep the project sound and moving forward.
Faith working together
The Family Resource Center of North Mississippi is reaching out to faith-based organizations to partner together to further outreach programs that address the urgent needs of all Mississippians.
There are so many areas in which people need a helping hand. FRC wants to work with faith-based groups to support or supplement their efforts. Together we can make a difference to improve the lives of Mississippians.

The generous donations of so many have made possible the
gifts of beds. Here are a few of our supporters.
Beds for Kids has been awarded a $200 donation and is enrolled in the $2000 donation that will be awarded in December. Click on the picture below for more information.
AmericanTrucks recognizes that pickups are the backbone of the American workforce, from job sites to disaster relief and everything in between, which is why we’re proud to launch the Positive Payload Program.
The Positive Payload Program is designed to benefit non-profit charitable organizations who use and rely on pickup trucks and pickup truck accessories to better their community. Anyone who works with or volunteers for a charity that uses Ford F-150s, Chevrolet Silverados, GMC Sierras, or Dodge Rams is welcome to apply for a $200 donation to the charity they are involved with. Finally, each year one of the previous winners of the $200 donation will be eligible for an annual award of an additional $2,000!
Mike Lindell is the inventor of the popular “My Pillow” and founder of the company that has the same name. He is not just another friendly TV celebrity but also a guy with a big heart. He has generously donated hundreds of his pillows to the Family Resource Center of North Mississippi’s Beds for Kids program. This was through his charity the Lindell Foundation.
Innocor of Baldwyn has also been a generous supporter of the beds ministry, they were among the original contributors when the program first started.
The Best Foam Company in Sherman heard about the program and donated foam mattresses.
Comforters were donated by Kidz World Furniture of Calhoun City. President Alison Nichols also serves as a youth leader at her church. Her youth group purchased 20 pillow cases and painted a Bible verse on each to add to the donation.
Hawkins Inc. in Ripley has generously donated enough lumber for volunteers to build more than 100 beds.
There are also usually weekly donations that come from members of the Mt. Olive Baptist church where Stanley Huddleston serves as pastor. Huddleston is director of the faith-based initiative and the Beds for Kids program. “Just about every week, someone brings a comforter or sheets or mattress cover,” he added.
Huddleston is excited to also report that some of the churches, organizations and groups he has been in contact with are on board with the project and are helping to find locations for construction of the beds in other areas.
