Plastic Grocery Bags wanted
Some of us - forget our reusable bags in the car or at home when we go shopping. Whatever the reason you have developed quite a collection of plastic grocery bags - REJOICE for now we will give our "bag of bags" a Higher Purpose!

  • SORT by store & color
    • example - I have Coborns white & Coborns brown/tan - keep them separate
    • this is necessary for the next steps in the process; please don't skip this step! Someone has to do it.
  • BRING your already-sorted bags stacked (to the church) where they will be transferred to volunteers with Homeless Helping Homeless or Weaving Love MN
    • both local non-profits have volunteers who turn these bags into PLARN
    • then into SLEEPING MATS for St. Cloud area homeless
Unfortunately friends - the need is real and it is ongoing. This is a year 'round project so SORT, then BRING your plastic bags and they will indeed be given a higher purpose again.
