Knitting Beds

Knitting Beds

This past week, a group of ladies from two local churches came to Whitney Place to share their ministry – a true labor of love. For months, Safe Place for Women, from Sarah Jane Johnson Church in Johnson City, and the Human Development Committee, from Church of the Holy Family in Endwell, have collected plastic bags to flatten and knit together (yes, knit!) to make bed rolls for those who may not have beds or even blankets to sleep on.

These mats will be distributed by Rescue Mission staff members throughout the community. Many will be blessed by their comfort – and we here at Whitney Place have been blessed to experience firsthand the compassion of these two congregations!
