New Life for Old Bags

"New Life for Old Bags" (NLOB) is a collaboration of folks of all ages and abilities making sleeping mats for the homeless out of used plastic bags. NLOB is intergenerational and green. The mats are distributed by Cornerstone Community Outreach in Uptown.

On the first Saturday of every month, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., volunteers for NLOB meet at United in Faith to create plarn, roll it into balls and create mats.  All are welcome to participate.  Similiar work days are held at Bethesda Home, 2833 N. Nordica Ave., every Tuesday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
