Crafty Oak Trace residents help homeless
DOWNERS GROVE – It takes a lot of work, but residents at the Oak Trace senior living community are turning bags that usually end up in the trash into something that can make a big difference for the homeless.
Since April, the group has been participating in the New Life for Old Bags program, which takes used plastic bags and weaves them into padded sleeping mats.
"It's not often that you hear such a win-win situation," said Oak Trace resident and volunteer Margaret Trinklein. "It's a chance to get rid of old plastic bags and help people who need it."
