That is what Orange resident Jackie Ashworth calls her project. Jackie heard that homeless men in local shelters carry their belongings in plastic grocery bags. Being creative, she sat at her sewing machine and came up with a bag that folds into a pillow. She purchased flannel material and poly fill and presented her idea to the Holy Infant Church Women’s Guild. Seven members volunteered to help make the bags. The ladies worked factory style to cut, sew, and fill the bags. After 9 hours, 70 bags were made! They will be filled with cards and toiletries by Midnight Run volunteers and will be given to the homeless shelter the week before Christmas. What started out as just an idea from Jackie turned into so much more. The spirit of Christmas is visible right here at Holy Infant.
