Loves Park VFW makes sleeping mats for homeless vets

Posted: Updated:

Members of the Loves Park VFW are looking for volunteers to help out with a project aiding homeless veterans.

A small group of volunteers cut, tie, and wrap plastic grocery bags into plastic yarn and then crochets the material into sleeping mats for homeless vets. Between 400 and 700 bags are needed to make just one bag.

The group has one mat totally completed and one is around one-third finished, but they are in need of more volunteers to help with the project. To volunteer, contact the Loves Park VFW at 815-654-2195.
