Sewing Laundry Bags for Care Home Staff

Now that we are all spending the majority of our time indoors I hope you’re able to help the front line staff in your area.

All nurses, carers and admin staff at care homes have to have a different set of clothes to travel to work in and then have to change into workwear. That workwear has to be put in a bag after work, taken home and washed in the bag.

There’s a great need for cloth bags about the size of a pillow case, with a draw string, for them to use. One of our members has just made 32 for me to take to a local care home and when she’s had a rest she’s going to do some more! The bags should have 72 hours without being used and you mustn’t transport them in a plastic bag, but you can tell the care home the history as you pass them over.

Your church may well have links with local care homes where they go to lead services so I suggest you start by contacting those. I expect doctors’ surgeries also need these bags, but as yet I haven’t enquired. Redundant sheets, quilt covers and pillow cases are ideal to use.

Happy sewing!

Verse of the Day

“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord for ever.” — 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 Listen to chapter Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica. Powered by BibleGateway.com.
