WOMEN OF PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH CREATE AND DONATE SLEEPING MATS
On Tuesday, November 24, 2020, 11 Sleeping Mats were donated to Keystone Rescue Mission in Scranton. PLARN mats were crafted by the women of Peace Lutheran Church.
Plastic Bag Yarn (PLARN) is an eco-friendly way to upcycle plastic bags into yarn and is then made into various items, including the sleeping mats donated to the Keystone Rescue Mission. It takes 500-700 plastic shopping bags, which are cut into strips, tied together, and then crocheted to make each mat. The mats donated are each 3 feet wide and 6 feet long with a handle. We thank these ladies for their time and dedication to create these mats for the homeless in our area.

A perfect pairing of fellowship and community impact - join us throughout the month for PLARN.
Plarn is plastic "yarn" made from reused grocery bags, which through crocheting becomes sleeping mats for the homeless in the area.
How can you help?
1. We need people to cut, tie, and roll the donated plastic bags while you talk with friends.
2. If you know how to crochet, or are willing to learn, then we need you to crochet the balls of plarn into mats for the homeless.
See the calendar section for complete times.
