Grocery-Bag Mattresses (Mats)

Yes, we do have volunteers who hand-make mats for homeless veterans and others. The purpose is to keep people off the ground, for warmth. We make and distribute mats year round. If you would like to volunteer and earn how to make these mats – it’s fun and easy, but time intensive – contact Carol at 888-766-0222 or email us at info@aboutface-usa.org.
