Mat Makers Sleeping Mats for the Homeless at Church of the Highlands

LOCATION 4700 Highlands Way Irondale, Alabama 35210 DESCRIPTION

We are passionate about ministering to the homeless by making simple sleeping mats out of plastic bags. **Join us by Door 5** We are headed to the yearly Mat & Blessing Bag Giveaway to the Homeless in November. We will have Sleeping Mats on display while we gather plastic grocery bags to smooth, cut and loop into "plarn" for crocheting. You'll be amazed at the process and meet some great people as well! You can help with quick and simple donation items for our Blessing Bags. Our goal this year is to hand out a Sleeping Mat with a Blessing Bag full of essentials and blessings.
