Community Corrections needs plastic bags for a service project

Plastic bag mats
Two Community Corrections staffers test the mats before delivering them to area homeless shelters.


For the past year, clients involved with Sarpy County Community Corrections have been making mats out of plastic grocery bags. Once completed, the mats are donated to homeless shelters in the area.

The service project has been very successful, but our supply of bags is running low. Each mat requires 500 plastic grocery bags, which are cut into strips and then knitted together.

If you would like to donate to the project, please bring plastic grocery bags to the Community Corrections Office, 1261 Golden Gate Drive Suite 1E, weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
