Dave Nicholson and Dave Lang

 

The National Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) held their monthly meeting on Tuesday, February 11th, 2020 at Eat ‘n Park Restaurant in Bridgeport.

The guest speaker was Dave Lang, Chapter President of Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP).   SHP is a group of volunteers dedicated to build, assemble and deliver wooden bunk beds to children in Harrison County WV.   Children without beds is a national problem and this non-profit organization has chapters across the US.   

At this time, Dave is asking for volunteers to help with deliver of the beds, but there are several opportunities to help.   You can sign up for a “build day”, help with delivery or make donations.    

You can contact SHP online at www.shpbeds.org , go to their facebook page for SHP Harrison Co WV or make donations to SHP PO Box 4725 Bridgeport, WV 26330.  

To sign up a child in need of a bed, the forms are on the website or call Mr. Lang at 304 6699742.   The slogan for SHP is “NO KID SLEEPS ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN’’.

The next NARFE meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 10th, 2020 at Eat ‘n Park Restaurant at 11:30 AM.   All Federal employees – Active and Retired – are invited to attend.     If you have questions about NARFE, contact David Nicholson at 304 745-3176 or Charlotte Trent at 304 842-2410.   You can also find information on www.narfe.org.
