Sleep Mats is a part of UMCOR International Methodist  Missions.  It serves local community, national and international homeless needs. The mats are woven completely from plastic shopping bags.  The bags are collected/donated locally. Then they are flattened, folded, cut, tied into strips and woven together on a table top loom. This makes a large mat approximately 30″ X 68″.  Mats create a moisture proof, critter resistant,and thermal insulating barrier under bedding. Workdays are the first and third Thursday at 1:00 at the church.
