Ugly Quilts Project

LET US COME TOGETHER AS A SCHOOL TO HELP THE HOMELESS BY MAKING SIMPLE EMERGENCY SLEEPING BAGS FROM RECYCLED FABRICS AND DISTRIBUTING THEM FREE TO PEOPLE WHO ARE COLD ON THE STREET.


** The Sleeping Bag is a utility quilt made from clean used or no-cost fabrics ** A group can make one in an hour ** The name indicates the skill level needed for this tied quilt ** The Ugly Quilt can be made in less than a day ** This simple sleeping bag should not have a market value to assure the homeless are beneficiaries.

COST:

There is no cost for this event, but we would ask you to consider bringing some baked goodies for the seniors at the Luzerne County location, if you would like. We will also be accepting donations of ground coffee and powder creamer at both locations for the homeless shelter in Lackawanna County. This is totally optional and no one is obligated to bring anything.

Join us for this mix of fun and adventure with our elderly friends at the Luzerne County Senior Center. We will share stories about our elderly family members at the Albright College location.
