    EUGENE, Ore. - One organization is making sure that children in need don't have to sleep on the floor.

    On Tuesday, 50 twin mattresses from Rife's Furniture were delivered in Eugene just in time for the holidays.

    It's all part of the non-profit "Sleep in Heavenly Peace" which builds bunk beds for kids and fills them with donated mattresses.

    There are 120 chapters of the organization across the U.S.

    "We started looking around, we started talking to the police departments, the fire departments, the social service type places and we found there is a huge need for it," said Bryce Jonas with Sleep in Heavenly Peace.

    Jonas said the beds also come with sheets, pillows and blankets.

    They still need about 40 more beds.

    If you'd like to donate or request a bed, visit the Sleep in Heavenly Peace website.
