The Sleeping Mat Project

April 14, 2020 - 10:30am

Volunteers meet at Or Hadash for The Sleeping Mat Project practicing the values of Bal Tashchit (do not waste) and Tikkun Olam (repair the world). Biweekly, volunteers make sleeping mats for homeless people out of recycled plastic bags.  These lightweight mats provide insulation from the wet and cold ground.

Or Hadash is the first faith-based organization that is working with Integrate for Good to create sleeping mats from recycled plastic bags.  These are later distributed to people who are homeless.  The Sleeping Mat Project is one of the activities of Integrate for Good, which has been operating since 2017 to strengthen local communities by expanding opportunities for people of all abilities to contribute their time and talent.

For more information on the innovative work being done by Integrate for Good, check out www.integrateforgood.org.
