I initially joined as an opportunity to get to know Winston-Salem. What better way to do that, than through service to the community.

Coffee Bags for Nothing But Nets

June 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On June 26th we will gather to make bags out of sustainable coffee sacks.  An instructor will lead us through how to cut the coffee bag and sew in a lining and straps.  These bags will be perfect for carrying to market for produce, or to the beach with a book and towel.  Participants must register by June 19th, by emailing [email protected]

Proceeds from this project will benefit Nothing but Nets, which is eradicating malaria and mosquito-borne illnesses one net at a time.  Cost for the bag will be $25.

 

Nothing But Nets is a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness, funds, and voices to fight malaria. In 2006, sports columnist Rick Reilly wrote a column in Sports Illustrated challenging each of his readers to donate at least $10 to send insecticide-treated bed nets to protect families from malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

Since then, with the help of our partners and supporters, we have raised over $70 million to help deliver 13 million bed nets to families in need, along with other crucial malaria interventions like diagnostics, treatment, and training of healthcare workers.
