"It may not be Santa's workshop, but what's hidden inside second grade teacher Trisha Baxter's Beavercreek garage is almost as magical. It's the headquarters of Snuggled Up Inc. , a non-profit she started after hearing the heartbreaking story of one of her students.
"She said 'I couldn't sleep last night. It was too cold on my floor even with my blanket," Baxter said.
For Baxter it was a wake up call. She says she actually stopped teaching to find out how many other kids in her class were without beds. What she discovered was that more than half of her students at Morrison Elementary in Harrison Township, slept on the floor."
