Adair Co. High School Clubs collecting plastic bags

National Honor Society, Beta Clubs will weave strips from plastic bags into sleeping mats for homeless in Lexington, KY

News from NHS/BETA Club, Adair County High School

The Adair County High School National Honor Society and BETA club are asking for your left over plastic bags!

As part of our dedication to community service, we are collecting plastic bags to cut into strips and weave into bed mats to donate to Lexington's homeless shelter.

We often times take for granted the wonderful blessing of having a warm bed to sleep in at night. So we ask that you take this opportunity to support this initiative to provide bed mats to those in need of a dry place to sleep. We don't discriminate when it comes to bags! Size, shape, color, ripped or not, plastic bags of all types are welcome. Save up your plastic bags from Walmart, the Dollar Store and local grocery stores. Drop them off at Adair County High School front office, 526 Indian Drive, Columbia, KY, any school day during the month of October. We thank you for your participation. -Leane Blackwelder, ACHS Junior
