NOLA Grannies: Recyclable Bag Production

In honor of Tu B'Shevat, the new year of the trees, we will spend the afternoon working on a recycling project for a wonderful cause. In their efforts to bring support and comfort to asylum seekers passing through New Orleans, the NOLA Grannies have come to realize one of the most needed resources for families are bags to carry their few posessions. Thanks to YouTube, there is an easy solution. Bring in your old t-shirts (solids and patterns are better than logos or pictures) to cut-up and turn into useful carrier bags. Bring your lunch. Desserts and coffee will be served. RSVP by Monday, January 14 to Rachel Ruth at 897-0143 x161 or
