Bed Start Pillow Project

Help Provide Pillows to Go Along with Our Bed Start Beds!

We are looking for individuals or Sunday School classes/small groups to commit to providing pillows for Bed Start for one week out of the year. Approximately 30 pillows per week are needed. Quality pillows are available from Target for $4 each. This works out to about $120 per week.

How Do You Help?:

Donate Pillows: If you would like to commit to a week or two, buy and deliver the pillows as a family or class, that would be ideal. If you purchase the pillows, please bring them to the Bed Start Shed in the parking lot ACROSS the street from the church-please DO NOT leave them in the donation area as we do not have the space! Saturday mornings, 8am-Noon are the best time to drop off, or contact Doug Nickols via email at .

Help Monetarily: Monetary donations should be made out to Custer Road UMC, indicate Bed Start Pillows on the memo line and turn checks into the church office to Stephanie Mills. Or click on the button below, and then choose one of the available Giving Methods.  If using PushPay, put Other in the Giving Type.  If using Arena to Give Online, uncheck the ‘Setup Scheduled Gift’ box and enter the amount on the Special Gift line.  For whatever method you choose, please  put “Bed Start Pillow Project” in the Memo section so your donation goes to the right place. Thank you for your generosity!

Help Serve with Bed Start:
As always, Bed Start welcomes families and Sunday School classes to volunteer their time on Saturday mornings, giving families a hand up, not a hand out. To see when you can serve with Bed Start next or to learn more about Bed Start, click here.

  1. We have a baby bed to donate. Would you like us to drop it off Saturday morning or schedule a pick up? Thank you for your response. Best Regards Jim and Mary Anderson

    1. Hi Jim and Mary.

      Donations can be brought to the church on Saturday mornings at 7:45 a.m. to the parking lot directly across from the church. If you would like it to be picked up at your home instead, you can contact Bed Start at to schedule a pick up. Thank you for thinking of Bed Start and for donating to a baby in need of a bed. Have a wonderful day! -Corey Krick, Social Media Specialist for Custer Road UMC.
