Lehi, UT – June 29, 2018 – Young Living Essential Oils, the world leader in essential oils, conducted a day-long service project on Friday, June 29, to benefit Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP), an organization dedicated to building, assembling, and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need.
This corporate fundraising event included 500 Young Living employees in Utah to make 60 bunk beds for 120 Utah children in need. In addition to the manpower used to build these bunk beds, the D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation donated $10,000 to the SHP Foundation to cover the cost of building materials, linens, mattresses, and other supplies. Young Living will deliver all beds completed.
“Studies show there is a close association between sleep and a wide range of cognitive functions, including attention and memory,” said Jared Turner, Young Living President and Chief Operating Officer. “As a global industry leader, Young Living understands its responsibility to the local Utah community and sees this project as an important step in facilitating wellness among our most vulnerable citizens. We are proud to help Sleep in Heavenly Peace give children a respite from the trials they face daily, giving them a safe space of their own to sleep comfortably.”
Additionally, Young Living employees and members have the opportunity to make additional financial contributions to the build through a dedicated portal on the D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation website.
“We are grateful for the overwhelming support from Young Living and its members,” said Matt McEwen, Lehi Utah Chapter President of Sleep in Heavenly Peace. “Having their own bed can have such a lasting impact on a child’s overall physical and mental health, and Young Living’s efforts have enabled us to change lives by providing hope and wellness to hundreds of individuals every week.”
