Extend a Hand. Change a Life.

Mercy Mats Volunteer Ministry

September 20, 9:00 AM - September 20, 12:00 PM
Recurring Event On the Third Thursday of the month until 12/20/2018 (total 11 events)

Catholic Charities’ Mercy Mats Volunteer Ministry creates sleeping mats from recycled plastic bags and distributes them to the homeless. Each mat provides not only a cushioned, pest-resistant sleeping alternative to the ground or concrete, it is also a protective barrier against surfaces that are wet and cold. The mats are nonabsorbent, easily cleaned, light-weight and roll-up for portability. The mats will be distributed primarily through Parish Kitchen in Covington, a ministry of Catholic Charities which serves a hot lunch-time meal 365 days a year.
