Providing Hope Workshops
May 29 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm CDT$5.00
Help create sock kits for the spring season to provide a new, dry pair of socks and other essentials to our homeless friends, and learn simple ways to engage the homeless in your community. Participants will be asked to bring 2 items for the kits, and everything else is provided with your class fee.
Leave your sock kit and ScrapsKC will distribute them to the homeless in downtown KCMO, or we encourage anyone who is comfortable to take their kit with them! When you’re out you can hand it out yourself. Dry socks are crucial for people who live outside, and other essentials included can prevent serious health risks. We’ll also repurpose plastic grocery bags for weaving and crocheting into mats for the homeless.
Each participant is asked to bring 1 tube of chapstick, and 1 travel size bottle of hand sanitizer. Everyone will be required to wear a mask in accordance with KCMO ordinances, and participants will be distanced for safety precautions in regards to COVID-19.
Sessions are 1 hour long at 10:30, 12:30, and 2:30.
