Sleeping Bags

Six additional sleeping bags have been delivered to the Newark Empowerment Center this year. According to the Farmer’s Almanac meteorological spring begins March 1 and astronomical spring arrived on March 19 at 11:06 p.m. in the northern hemisphere. Despite the snowstorms, spring started showing up in our bulb gardens in February this year. The change of season is according to God’s schedule. What does spring have to do with making sleeping bags? Yes, the weather gets warmer, but we will continue to make sleeping bags into April and May.

Supplies Needed: Razors, hats, gloves, toothpaste, ChapStick, socks, small hand towels, and cotton crochet thread.

Please keep our mission project in mind when you start your spring-cleaning. Insulated or heavy drapes
make strong waterproof outer layers. Comforters, blankets, quilts, mattress pads and fleece throws make warm lining layers. Sheets make a seamless interior layer. Large pieces of upholstery, home décor, fleece, quilt, and apparel fabric by the yard could also be used to make sleeping bags. And as always, we are always looking for new friends to help build a bag. Share our mission project’s needs with family, friends, and neighbors and plant a seed for God. —MaryBeth
