What is PLARN? Plarn is converting recyclable shopping bags into plastic yarn known as plarn. The plarn is then crocheted to make useful items for our guests who stay in Knox Hall during Our Neighbor’s Place – Overflow Shelter. Last year this volunteer team took on this mission and crafted sleeping mats made from the plarn. They collected shopping bags, folded them, cut them into strips, rolled them, and then crocheted about 25 mats thanks to all of the team including the Springhill team.
This year the plarn team is making neck rolls and pillows for the guests at Our Neighbor’s Place. We made a few last year and they were really in demand. Therefore, the decision was made to make neck rolls/pillows for this fall and winter season. It is such a privilege and blessing to use our talents to give our guests at Our Neighbors Place some measure of comfort. The Plarn Team meets every third Wednesday after Connections dinner through March 21, 2018.
