The Sleeping Mat Project- Helping the Homeless in Our Community

January 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

On Wednesdays, January 23, February 6 & 20 and March 13 & 27 from 10:00am – 11:30am, the Lower Providence Community Library will host a hands-on program, The Sleeping Mat Project-Helping the Homeless in Our Community, presented by Bev Weinberg, director of Integrate for Good.

Did you know plastic bags taking up space in your closet can be woven into sleeping mats for people who are experiencing homelessness in our community?  We welcome you to join us for this innovative, hands-on project.  People of all ages and abilities are welcome.  You will learn how to make plarn (plastic yarn) and weave it into colorful mats to make a difference for homeless people in our area.  This project is sponsored by Integrate for Good, a project designed to expand opportunities for individuals of all abilities to share their time and talent through volunteerism in Montgomery County.

Bev Weinberg is the project director of Integrate for Good. Bev received her Bachelor’s degree in Urban Studies from the University of Pittsburgh and her Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from Temple University.  Bev received her clinical doctoral degree in Occupational Therapy in 2016, along with a Certificate in Innovation and Entrepreneurship from the Fox School of Business.

This program is free and open to all.  You may attend any or all of the dates. Registration requested.
