The Ugly Quilts team uses donated bedding and comforters to construct sturdy sleeping bags for the homeless. The group meets the 2nd Friday of every month in the Bi-Rooms (Door 1) from 12:30-3pm, although participants are welcome to come and go as needed. Masks must be worn and social distancing will be maintained to ensure everyone's safety.
No sewing skills are required. Training is provided.
The sleeping bags, along with hats, gloves, socks and toiletries, are distributed through the trustees office and a homeless outreach group in downtown Indianapolis.
Donations needed ...
- new combs

The donation boxes are located next to the restrooms in the hall across from the Sanctuary.
