Mat Making for the Homeless
February 2nd, 2019 from 13:00 to 15:00 at 1101 rue Stanley.
Jolene Otten will be hosting a mat making circle where you can learn how to weave mats and pillows from plastic bags or if you already how you can share with others. These created items will then be distributed to people living on the streets of Montreal. It’s a great way to recycle and give someone an extra bit of comfort.
Recently, a man relayed how happy he was to receive one of these mats and pillows, as it was the first time in 12 years that he had a pillow to sleep on. Sometimes the impact of our actions is larger than we can imagine. Come join us if this way of reaching out to those in need resonates with you. Looking forward to see you on February 2, 2019!
