Learn to weave plastic mats for the homeless, decorate character wigs, assemble card making kits and much more at the Mapleton Community Humanitarian Fair in Memorial Hall, in conjunction with the Mapleton Pioneer Day Celebration on July 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. There are projects for the entire family, including kids!
Mapleton Hands to Hearts have invited groups to sponsor projects with opportunities for the entire family, including kids! Come weave plastic bags on giant looms into mats for refugees and the homeless, decorate character wigs for pediatric patients, use your skills to cut, sew and tie quilts for the homeless and tie fleece blankets sent to refugee camps, cut fabric and panels for Days for Girls, assemble card making kits for teen girls and make jingle boxes for infants in battered women’s shelters throughout Utah! There will be Make and Take projects for kids too!
Memorial Hall is located at West Maple Street and North Main Street in Mapleton.
