We are asking for your clean plastic bags to be crocheted into mats for the homeless. Lightweight, warm, easy to carry, and bugs don't like plastic.
They make a great mat to sleep on. Can be sprayed down clean with water and dry quickly. Please bring them to a car show or cruise night and let me know you will be there. I will pick them up. Large or small ones are fine. We could even get together and have a bag cutting night if anyone wants. If you separated the heavier plastic and thinner ones, and maybe even by color, it helps, but not necessary. We will take what we can get. It takes 500-700 to make a 3’x6' bed.
Thanks for your help.

Long-time Streeters member, Bill Foley had his gorgeous '66 Galaxie 500 featured on "My Car Story" with Lou Costabile recently. We've had many many Streeters Cars get their due of publicity, whether by press article, Television, Automotive event or whatever, and now we can chalk up one more Streeters car getting it's rightful place on the Streeters mantel.
