Prineville electrical co. builds bunk beds for kids in need


Children from four families in Prineville are resting easier after Rosendin Electric teamed up with a national non-profit organization, Sleep in Heavenly Peace, to build bunk beds for those in need.

On Saturday, April 13, over 30 employees from Rosendin’s Prineville office opened the doors of their newly renovated prefabrication building – formerly the bowling alley – to sand, drill, stain, and assemble 10 beds for donation to local underprivileged families.

“One of Rosendin’s core values is We Care,” said Gwen Carr, Rosendin’s business development manager in Prineville. “Giving back to the communities where we work and live is important to us, and this is just one example of how our employees do just that.”

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a 501c (3) nonprofit organization with 170 chapters across the United States. They estimate that 1.5 to 2 million children in America sleep on the floor each night.

In 2018, 14,780 volunteers helped the organization build 4,144 bunk beds for children. In 2019, the organization anticipates building over 10,000 beds and helping over 20,000 children sleep comfortably.

“Sleep in Heavenly Peace is truly an amazing movement,” says Susie Brown, chapter president for Sleep in Heavenly Peace. “Humans Helping Humans! We are always excited to have community members who want to be involved in our projects as we run solely off donations and volunteers.”

Rosendin opened an office in Prineville in 2009 to support work for data center projects in the area. In January of this year, Rosendin extended its long-term commitment to Central Oregon by purchasing a building and property and establishing a new division based in Prineville.
