What began as a casual recycling effort has turned into an on-going program for Love Thy Neighbor.
Our Love Thy Baby (LTB) volunteers create lots of soft “scraps” when cutting quilt batting and squares, tearing off selvage, and trimming blankets, hats and booties. We started donating these scraps to a local volunteer who used them for dog bed stuffing for Operation Kindness. LTB volunteers loved the idea of recycling versus throwing out and started bringing in their scraps from home too. Soon the amount we were collecting far exceeded the quantity that could be used by the Operation Kindness volunteer. So LTB volunteers began making dog/cat beds too and Love Thy Pet was born!
