Volunteer Opportunities

You can help My Very Own Bed give kids here in the Twin Cities a good night’s sleep and a better chance at success in school. Volunteer to help deliver the beds or to pack Dream Kits — beds, sheets, a pillow, and a stuffed animal. You can also give to fund new beds and linens or help us secure bed donations.

We strongly value, and stubbornly adhere to the mantra, “Get better before you get bigger." My Very Own bed is a small organization that is run wholly by a small group of volunteers - if you are passionate about building community and fighting the cycle of homelessness in the Twin Cities, we want to hear from you.

Volunteer Opportunities 

  • Delivery Volunteer - Individuals and teams, including families, youth and adults, to deliver beds and Dream Kits. This is a hands-on, life-changing, outreach opportunity that allows volunteers to meet and directly impact families who have experienced homelessness.
 
  • Dream Kit Volunteer – Purchase Dream Kit supplies including new sheets, a pillow, and a stuffed animal. Assemble Dream Kits individually or as a group activity.
 
  • Donation Drive Volunteer – Organize a donation drive in your church community or work. Collect supplies for Dream Kits.
 
  • Blanket-Making Volunteer – Youth groups could make tie-blankets together as an outreach activity. Groups and individuals could make quilts, knit or crochet blankets, and put together blankets for children.
