This is a craft project that is full of heart as well as being community minded. Crocheting a mercy mat with plarn, that is, plastic yarn is a creativity project with specific mission: to care for and to comfort the homeless people in our community.
Please consider donating your bags to to Saint John Bosco Parish for this special project. You can leave the bags in the designated box in the Usher’s Room. It takes approximately 500 plastic bags to make a 6-foot-tall mat with two-inch straps and carry handle. Completed plastic mats will be donated to a local ministry that does outreach to our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness. Thank you for your support.
