"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Margaret Mead stated the above quote, and it exemplifies the small group of caring and committed people who are creating sleeping mats for homeless individuals throughout Tyler and across Smith County, by using plastic bags that we may use after shopping at a grocery store or a department store. 

It takes many hands working together to collect bags, prepare them into plarn (plastic yarn), crochet and distribute the final product to the homeless and needy.

You are invited to help, either as an individual, with a group of coworkers, with friends and with your church members.
