Gather all those plastic bags so we can recycle them into sleeping mats for the homeless!
Here is a video on how to make one if you want to start working ahead of time.
If you don’t know how to crochet, I can teach you! If you aren’t really into the idea of learning, that is cool, too. We can put you to work creating the “yarn” that the mats will be made of.
Please feel free to put the word out to your friends, family, coworkers that you are collecting bags since we will need hundreds to create just one mat.
If you would like to create care packages/blessing bags with toiletries, socks, undies, money, etc, I highly encourage you to bring donations for that, too. I would like to suggest we create these using either reusable bags or paper bags so we aren’t creating possible moop in the area.
