Amanda Hackworth’s passion for the homeless is literally “in the bag.”
The Harriman wife and mother is heading up a ministry that creates homeless mats out of plastic grocery bags, which makes for lightweight and waterproof sleeping accommodations.
“If they had a mat, it would give them a little more comfort,” she explained. “They are waterproof, and we make them extra thick, to prevent body sores.”
It was after seeing a YouTube video on the process that Hackworth decided to pursue the project herself.
