More than 390 students in Preschool through 5th grade at Neinas will learn how their bodies grow while they sleep and how important it is for them to get enough rest. They will also learn the dos and don’ts of a bedtime routine, and each will receive a Sweet Dreamzzz Sleep Kit, which includes a sleeping bag, nightshirt, socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, stuffed animal and an activity book with crayons. In addition, preschool and kindergarten children at Neinas will receive fleece blankets made by Divine Child High School (Dearborn) students, who will be on hand to help Sweet Dreamzzz distribute the items.
TWO MEN and A TRUCK - Wixom, a partner with Sweet Dreamzzz, will pick up and deliver the sleep kits to the school. The sleep kits, sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities, the Village Club Foundation and the Sojourner Foundation, were packed by Girl Scouts of Highmeadow Common Campus in Farmington Hills.
