Carolyn Scott of Pandora recognized a need and she acted. Now, thanks to her efforts the Pandora United Methodist Church developed the "Sleeping Bag Project."
The project is a local response to the growing problem of homelessness close to home and across the United States.
In brief, the project provides sleeping bags to local agencies that house homeless persons thanks for donations from area residents, organizations and businesses. One Bluffton business, The Curling Iron, N. Main St., is accepting donations as it participates in the project.
