Looking for a wood working volunteer!

Abbey Lane is looking for a volunteer(s) to make our school 8 wooden frames to weave milk bags. Each frame will weave approximately 500 milk bags to form one section. Each mattress takes 8 sections.

Once we have the frames, we will have a workshop for interested students and parents after school. There are many helpful stages to the process so many hands make light work. We would like to donate our mattresses to developing countries who use them to sleep on, sit on at school, for surgical mattresses and for packing supplies during air travel. Due to the anti-bacterial nature of the bags, they can be washed and reused again. This is an Eco Club initiative. If interested, please contact the VP, Dawn Lazerte to use her frame template.
