Sleeping Mats

by Alison Crane - March 12, 2021

In January, I had the privilege of participating in the Garland County Homeless Count. Representatives of various community organizations, including our Garland County Extension Homemakers Council, manned tables with donated clothing, food, and other useful items. While there I was able to network with the groups supporting this cause for future collaborations and gain an understanding of what they do to help the homeless in our county. My short time as a volunteer for the count was unforgettable. For me, one of the most memorable parts of my time visiting or assisting someone with some of the items donated was hearing the pride in the voices of those showing off their new sleeping mats.
