New Beds to Benefit James Mission of Tulsa, Oklahoma

Tulsa, Oklahoma – April 17, 2019:  Conner Industries Inc. was proud to be a sponsor of the Build-A-Bed Project by supplying pre-cut lumber and helping them to build wooden bed frames for families in need in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area during the Build-A-Bed Workday on April 13th. The finished beds will be distributed by James Mission to families in need in the Tulsa area. These beds help families who need to meet DHS requirements as well as foster, single parenting and low income families.  Conner’s participation in the Build-A-Bed Project is part of the Conner Cares initiative adopted by the company last year.

“This is the second year we’ve been a sponsor of the Build-A-Bed Project, and it’s a great opportunity for us to make a difference in the community here in Tulsa,” says Gerald Goodson, Director of Western Regional Sales at Conner Industries. “We’re really pleased to be able to not only donate the wood, but to also be able to participate in building the beds as well.”

The Build-A-Bed Project (TBAB), founded in 2018, partnered with James Mission of Tulsa when discovered that beds were a high need for the families they work with. Since its inception in June 2013, James Mission has quickly become a vital lifeline for foster and adoptive families in Northeast Oklahoma providing a wide variety of resources. TBAB Project has future plans to also partner with other non-profit organizations. Their mission statement is “No Child should sleep on the floor.  In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety. – Psalm 4:8”

“We are so blessed by Conner’s generous lumber donation to this project as well as the volunteer involvement of Gerald and Jake at this years workday.” says Missy Strong, co-founder of The Build-A-Bed Project. “Our workday is a great opportunity for us to come together and use the gifts God has given all of us to simply show love to our neighbors. We built 51 twin size beds in 6 hours this year and would not be possible without all of the friends who volunteered their Saturday with us.”
