(Joplin, MO) – The Dream Big Little One, Foundation accepts gently used mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and other comfort items. With a commitment to connect these donations to children in Missouri and Kansas, Dream Big Little One receives recommendations from area case workers, school counselors, and other, local public service men and women. Those recommendations connect Dream Big Little One to children who may be sleeping on a couch, the floor, or crowded in with other siblings. Due to the unsanitary conditions of some used mattresses and pillows, Dream Big Little One is not able to accept all used donations.
Dream Big Little One, Foundation has accepted a $1,590 sponsorship from Crossland Construction Company to provide new mattresses, pillows, and linens to children in Missouri and Kansas. Dream Big Little One seeks to maximize a child’s self-esteem while creating a safe, clean sleeping space for community children in need. They strive to support the emotional development of children to feel respected, valued, respected, and to be able to dream big!
“Dream Big Little One is grateful to Crossland Construction for their generous donation to this ministry,” says Tess Watson, Founder and President of Dream Big Little One. “Crossland Construction, along with Dream Big Little One, will have a positive impact in the lives of children in need. This financial gift will not only give them a new, safe bed to call their own, but will also create a rise in their self-esteem and productivity in life. Thank you, Crossland Construction, for helping us continue this ministry. Children are our future and we want them to feel our love.”
“Crossland is happy to support the local organization Dream Big Little One. When we heard they had a waitlist for beds, we knew we had to help. Knowing that ten more kids will now have mattresses to get a good night’s rest helps us rest easier too. We know how important it is to support organizations that are improving our communities and will continue to support Dream Big Little One,” says Danny Langerot, VP Midwest Construction Management Division of Crossland.
