Organizer ~ Sharon Gusz, a Milk Bags Unlimited Volunteer

Sharon Gusz, an RTOERO member, organizes this project at two locations. District 23, North York enthusiastically supports this activity and encourages members to join in at either the St. Gabriel’s Parish location in North York or at Our Lady Queen of The World Church in Richmond Hill. Choose the location that is most convenient for yourself.

The project involves weaving milk bags into sturdy mats. Volunteers cut up the bags and others weave them using large looms designed for this purpose. This weaving of milk bags was first introduced in 2014. The project has grown exponentially, and since 2016 over 50,000 mats have been delivered to either Dr. Simone’s warehouse (Canadian Food for Children) or outreach organizations that serve people without housing closer to home.
