Frankfort, KY (May 14, 2011) – Approximately 400 volunteers came to Boone National Guard Center Saturday to build 100 beds for children in Kentucky's Franklin, Fayette, Woodford and Jessamine counties at the Third Annual Build-A-Bed event hosted by SUCCESS Corp, a program of Kentucky Americorps.
"We are pleased and honored to once again host the Build-a-Bed event here at Boone Center," said Maj. Gen. Edward Tonini, adjutant general of Kentucky. "You all have shown your dedication to the people of Kentucky by your volunteerism here on this rainy Saturday morning."
"We are glad to have partners like the Kentucky National Guard, " said Angela Baldridge, co-founder of the Build-a-Bed project. "Hosting this event in the hanger keeps us out of the rain today, and we thank you!"
