Some of the Charity and Fundraising Events We Support / Sponsor
Sleepyhead Beds was founded in 2010 where it set out with a simple mission, to provide a proper place to sleep for the children of the Kansas City metro area. Through volunteer efforts, Sleepyhead Beds collects gently used beds and bedding, sanitizes them, and delivers them to families in need. To support this effort, we regularly host bed drives and has even been able to help Sleepyhead Beds receive a $25,000 grant from Mercedes-Benz USA. By providing children places to sleep; something so basic, the children realize greater self-esteem, motivation, and a feeling of safety. Grades improve when a child has a bed to sleep in.

Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City along with our dealership are Presenting Sponsors in the Annual Art of the Car Concours, which is held on the campus of the Kansas City Art Institute.
