Overview Of The Beds4Kids Program
The Mustard Seed Furniture Bank has offered its unique Beds4Kids Program since 2002. When a family is referred to us with children in need of beds, we provide each child ages 2-17 the needed items they may need for a good night of sleep.
When children sleep on the floor, on a broken mattress, or with others in a small bed, they do not get as much critically needed sleep. The children are then tired, which limits their ability to actively participate in school, eventually resulting in lower grades. They may lose interest completely and drop out of school. With a new bed and all of the trimmings, children will get the rest needed to grow up healthy, pursue their educational goals, and become leaders of our community.
The Mustard Seed Furniture Bank of Fort Wayne’s Beds4Kids program has touched the lives of over 8,800 children in our 7-county service area in Northeast Indiana. Through the continued support of Wolf Corporation in mid-2017 each child whose family has been referred to our organization for a bed will receive a new platform bed and mattress along with a new pillow, set of sheets and blanket. This will allow our organization to be more economical with the use of the generous donations to support this program, but also decrease the quantity of wood and materials that were previously used to manufacture the foundations for this program.
We appreciate the community’s continued support of the Beds4Kids program.
HOW DO I DONATE TO THE BEDS4KIDS PROGRAM?
Our Beds4Kids Program represents the Mustard Seed’s largest expense. Each bed has an estimated cost of $125!! We are grateful for the generous support of the Wolf Corporation and local foundations and corporations, but still need additional financial support.
We welcome financial gifts and provide a variety of ways to make a tax-deductible donation.

Partnership With The Wolf Corporation
The Wolf Corporation has a proud tradition of producing high-quality products for their customers while also giving back to the community.

Their staff and owners take pride in a great partnership with the Mustard Seed Furniture Bank, going all the way back to our establishment in 2002. Since then this partnership has provided over 9,000 children with a bed of their own and that number continues to grow with each day as we serve more children.
