The youth of our presbytery will be making mats for the homeless at their spring retreats, called Conclaves. These mats are made from plastic bags that are cut into strips and looped together to be crocheted into a mat. They are light weight, water -roof, and actually have a cushion feel to them. It takes 500 to 700 bags to make one sleeping mat 36 x 72 inches. So… we need YOUR HELP in collecting plastic bags! Plastic bags should be collected at the local church and then brought to Conclaves by youth groups. Contact Rev. Caressa Murray with questions at email@example.com.
Calling ALL YOUTH GROUPS of our presbytery!
February 24 – 26, and March 3 – 5
