St Maryís Parish Is Making "Milk Bags for Haiti"
500 Milk Bags = 1 Sleeping Mat
Provides clean & comfortable sleeping mats for Haitians
Biting insects & poisonous spiders donít like the plastic therefore donít hide in it
Hung to dry during the day & washed in the river to clean
Used endlessly by the Haitians
In 2012 we also undertook collecting "Milk Bags" which we use to make "Mats" which we then forward to Haiti to aid. Since the start we have now sent away over 100 Milk Bag mats to Haitithrough Canadian Food for Children.
Donate your plastic bags (that hold your milk bags) to our parish so they can transform milk bags into clean & comfortable sleeping mats for the Haitian people. Spread the word to your friends & family. Look for the container marked "Milk Bags for Haiti," in the Narthex and help be a blessing to the people of Haiti.
Join us for mat making from 10:00am-Noon in the Parish Centre
