LA PLUME, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WOLF) — People at Keystone College Monday, carrying on Martin Luther King Junior's legacy by helping the homeless.
The Sleeping Bag Project takes recycled fabrics and sews them together to help those on the streets survive.
It's a national effort, that's coming to Keystone for the ninth year in a row. The event which was open to both students and the community.
The sleeping bags were stuffed with a health kit and will be delivered to the Keystone Mission in Scranton.
"It's the type of project where so many people help but they may not have all the sewing skills they need, but I don't care. It's called an ugly quilt for a reason. You know, the mistakes and everything stay in it. The object is to keep somebody alive," Flo Wheatley, founder of The Sleeping Bag Project.
The goal was to make 15 to 25 of these sleeping bags. Anyone can get involved in the effort.
