2nd Annual KYCUL Build-A-Bed Project
Ashland Credit Union (ACU) and Members Choice Credit Union (MCCU) in partnership with community supporters held the 2nd Annual Build A Bed Event at the Boyd County Community Center; making a difference in the lives of children, one bed at a time.
The Ashland Build A Bed project is an extension of the Morehead AmeriCorps project that has built over 1,300 beds for children in need Eastern Kentucky over the last 9 years. The Ashland area project was created as a KYCUL-Ashland chapter project by ACU and MCCU, because of the great need in the community.
During the first year of the Ashland Build A Bed, nearly 70 volunteers were present, and 69 beds were constructed. However, this year over 222 volunteers were present, and 100 beds were built by community volunteers. Volunteers were community members from local businesses, churches, schools, and professional groups. The outpouring of sponsorships for this year’s event was a testament to this area’s great love and support of community.
