Sleeping Bag Ministries


News Release:

    Sheriff Ernie Coleman and the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is proud to partner with Kingdom Builders. Kingdom Builders is a local street ministry that has been handing out sleeping bags to people in need for the past year. A total of 20 sleeping bags have been given out since the program started.

    Most of the effort has been in and around Washington but Kingdom Builders would like to reach more of Beaufort County. Dr. Frank Sheldon, representing Kingdom Builders met with Sheriff Ernie Coleman and Chief Deputy Charlie Rose. During the meeting it was decided that Kingdom Builders would provide sleeping bags to the Sheriff's Office. Patrol Deputies will keep a sleeping bag in their patrol vehicle and will give the sleeping bags to those that are in need, whether they are homeless or because of other circumstances. The sleeping bags will be replaced once given out.

    Donations from members of Old Ford Church of Christ has provided the sleeping bags since the program was initiated. If anyone in the community would like to make a donation, checks can be made to Old Ford Church of Christ with a notation on the memo line "for sleeping bag". The cost of one sleeping bag is $30.00. For further information please contact Dr. Frank Sheldon at (252) 975-2366 or (252)943-1985.


    Thank-you,

    Chief Deputy Charlie Rose
