Head Start Managers Build Beds

posted 10/29/22 -- Two dozen Lorain County children will sleep more safely and more soundly thanks to the efforts of the LCCAA Head Start Management Team.

The team of site administrators and other managers worked with Good Knights of Lorain County to build 24 twin beds for families in need.

“We know some of our families have benefitted from this great non-profit,” said Education and Disabilities Specialist Jennifer Bartlebaugh. “It was a team building opportunity for us and also a way to give back to our community.”

The day of service was planned while children are on Fall Break so managers could get away from their centers, Bartlebaugh added.

The team built 24 beds in two and a half hours, she said. Good Knights has stations set up for cutting, sanding, drilling, assembling and other steps. The organization has community builds every month on the second Tuesday at their shop in Amherst. Deliveries are typically done on the third Saturday of the month.
