Sister Kathy Roberg Makes Sleeping Mats for Homeless

04/19/2021 5:08 pm

Sister Kathy Roberg found a way to care for our planet while caring for some of its most vulnerable inhabitants.

Since 2015, she’s made sleeping mats for the homeless from plastic bags. When the pandemic limited many of her volunteer activities, Roberg channeled her energy and time into the mats. To date, she’s made 272 of them.

“I’ve actually given away 350, because, for a time, my cousin had a group that made them,” Roberg said. “I made so many mats, my first crochet hook broke!”
