Spectrum Life: Mats for the Homeless

Shawnee Hills Senior Living

Shawnee, Kansas

Residents of Shawnee Hills have taken up a new weekly project to benefit the homeless in the local area. One resident, Anne, showed the group how to reuse plastic bags to make “plarn.” The plarn is delivered to nearby St. Joseph’s Catholic Church where a group of crocheters turns it into mats to be delivered to the local homeless shelters sometimes directly to people living on the street.
