PLASTIC MATS FOR THE HOMELESS
Saturday, April 14th from 10am-2pm
Donations Needed: Plastic grocery bags
The Women’s Council, in conjunction with the ACCW, is hosting this event to make sleeping mats for the homeless out of plastic grocery bags. Please come for an AM or PM two-hour shift to learn how to make the mats. We will be collecting plastic grocery bags in a bin at the back of the church. Please bring a 16mm crochet hook and a pair of scissors. It takes approximately 700-800 plastic bags to make one mat, so we need many grocery bags to create these mats. Light refreshments will be provided.
