No more plastic bags. That's the word from Roseburg High School following an overwhelming amount of plastic grocery bags donated to the school to help the homeless.
On Sunday, Jan. 28, The News-Review ran a story about Roseburg High School students using thousands of grocery bags to create sleeping mate for the homeless. Staff from United Community Action Network distributed the mats to those in need.
The project was a huge success, but has come to an end, said Larina Warnock, RHS business teacher and Future Business Leaders of America adviser. Students are grateful for the support, but the school will not be accepting any more bags.
