Gabriel is a 2nd grader. Although his mom, Rosaleen, works at a local nursing home, her pay check just did not stretch far enough to buy him a bed so he had been sleeping with her. Then she learned about A Bed for Every Child at an open house at Gabriel’s school. On the day that the Coalition delivered the bed, Rosaleen could not wait for Gabriel to come home from school. Not only would he be sleeping in his own bed, he also had a new friend, a bed buddy stuffed animal.
