Operation Bedroll

Dutch Fork HS Job Skills students made and donated eight finished bedrolls to Operation Bedroll for Columbia’s chronically homeless population. Each bedroll requires about 700 plastic grocery bags and 80 hours of labor (40 hours to make the plastic bag yarn and 40 hours to crochet.) Now these students are learning to weave plastic bags on pizza box looms.
