Mat Makers Will Meet
Quiet, quarantined hands have been busy at home making sleeping mats for the homeless during this past few months. Nearly 25 mats await delivery to the inner-city missions of Kansas City and Wichita.
The group will meet again this Thursday, June 11, from noon until 4:00. We meet in the parish hall of St. John Lutheran Church. We will try to keep a safe distance from each other if that’s a concern to anyone. Everyone is welcome to stop in and see what it’s all about. We will be busy folding, cutting plastic sacks and crocheting the strips into mats. Come for part or all of the time.
Mats that will be taken to the homeless shelters.
