Students to Make Sleeping Bags for the Homeless
- Students to Make Sleeping Bags for the Homeless
Keystone College’s Diversity Services will participate in a service project in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Keystone students will assemble sleeping bags in conjunction with the Hop Bottom, Pa.-based My Brother’s Keeper Quilt Group and the “Sleeping Bag Project.”
My Brother’s Keeper Quilt Group is an organization made up of individuals and groups desiring to help the homeless by making simple sleeping bags from recycled fabrics and distributing them free to the homeless.
Keystone students will use the organization’s supplies to create a few sleeping bags on Mon., Jan. 16 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Hibbard Campus center. Students will then travel to New York City Wed., Jan. 18 to help My Brother’s Keeper Quilt Group distribute sleeping bags to the homeless and visit a homeless shelter.
