This Sunday- Crochet of Caring

Calling all Crocheters and those who can wield scissors!
This Sunday from 1-5pm we’ll be crocheting sleeping mats out of your old plastic bags! Drop your plastic bags off from 1-4pm at 109 Pulford Ave (in Oak Table Inc’s Drop in Space inside Augustine United Church) – so we have the last hour to crochet them! It takes 500 bags to make one sleeping mat so we need them all! PLUS – Feast Cafe and Bistro is donating so amazing Bannock for breaks between bag cutting or mat crocheting!

Just a Warm Sleep will be opening on January 1st 2018 and with your help we’ll have sleeping mats for up to 25 people. Security is provided overnight from Bear Paw Security. Volunteers staff the overnight warming centre from 10-11pm and 6:30- 8 am. Want to volunteer? Contact
