“We had a student who was having difficulty sleeping and would come in my office to sleep every day around 10am. Come to find out, she didn't have a bed and was too uncomfortable to sleep. We bought her a bed that day and had it delivered. The first day she came to school after having her new bed, she came up to me and gave me a hug. She said ‘I never knew what it was like to sleep like that!’ There's been so many memories/moments like this with Care to Learn, but for some reason, that one got me. We take for granted that everyone has the luxury of sleeping in a bed at night and that's just not the case.” -Natasha
