Louisville Children Surprised with a Gift of Sleep

50 Louisville children who routinely sleep on the floor or on makeshift arrangements were surprised with beds Saturday.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - 50 Louisville children who routinely sleep on the floor or on makeshift arrangements were surprised with beds Saturday.

According to the release, the children from the Boys and Girls Club of Kentuckiana believed they were coming to the Louisville Slugger Field for a tour and to meet players but were surprised to see a room filled with beds.

“That moment when each child lies down in his or her own bed for the first time is really something special, you can just see it on their faces,” says Mackenzie Duffy, community and partnership specialist with Ashley HomeStore. “Every child certainly deserves a good night’s sleep and the chance to dream big.”
