Members of the Streetsboro United Methodist Church will be taking part in the Kent State University Alumni Service Day from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. April 21. Lunch will be provided.

The group will be using plastic bags to make sleeping mats for the homeless and invites everyone to join in the fun by donating bags, cutting bags, making "plarn" balls, crocheting mats, or all of the above. It takes about 700 plastic bags to make a mat.

Those attending should bring their own tools, including plastic grocery bags, scissors and a No. 10 crochet hook. The event will be held at the church, 8940 S.R. 43, Streetsboro. For more information, call 330-626-4393.
