A few months ago we began a new ministry. We started collecting recycled plastic bags and making sleeping mats for the homeless with them. We start by cutting the bags a certain way and tying them together. Then we roll the plastic into a ball of PLARN (plastic-yarn), then we crochet them into the sleeping mats. We go to downtown Indianapolis to feed the homeless once a month and although it may take several months to make a large number of mats, our goal is to deliver at least 100 the first time take them. If you would like to drop off plastic (especially colored ones) we could use them.
If you are dropping off items for any of the 4 collections during the week you might give us a call first to make sure someone is at the church to accept your dontation.
Thank you for helping!
