Bedrolls for Homeless Crochet Event #2

  • Humanist Community Center

    627 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa, AZ (map)

    33.429291 -111.844849

  • We are located on W Rio Salado Pkwy (formerly 8th St), between Alma School and Country Club.
  • Project to Help People Who Are Homeless, Event #2

    Recycle plastic grocery bags into bedrolls.

    Join fellow Humanists in a class where Anita Romanowski will teach us how to crochet these very useful items.

    Want to make a difference in the lives of Phoenix’s homeless population?  Some of these people who reside in an “Urban Camp” are sleeping on concrete.  These plastic bag bedrolls will help insulate people against heat, cold and provide a soft surface to sleep on.

    To get you started before the event, we’ve included this how-to video.

    For our second class we plan on doing things a little bit differently.  Let’s do this assembly line style.  We’ll have a few people cut up bags, others string the loops together and a few people crochet.  This can be done on a rotating basis.

    Bring your saved plastic grocery bags and a pair of scissors and feel free to invite family and friends to come join us.
