Mrs. Tara Camp's FCCLA and Family Consumer Science Investigation students at Pinkston Middle School have been working on a recycle project that has grown into a community service project. The students have been weaving used plastic grocery bags into sleeping mats for homeless in our community. They have finished four mats and are working on the fifth. Each mat requires around 700 bags to be cut into loops and connected to make a long plastic yarn. Then, the yarn must be weaved into a mat. They have worked very hard, and we are so proud of them!
We would also like to extend our gratitude to Paula Lockard, a former Bomber, who heard of our project and donated money to both it and Pinkston!
If you'd like to help, please bring your used plastic bags of all colors to the Pinkston front office. Thank you!
