Date and time


Gore Meadows Branch, Brampton Library

Brampton, ON

Directions: In the Gore Meadows Community Centre.



Offered in English.

Wheelchair accessible.


Father Francis McSpiritt CES in Brampton have been actively collecting milk bags to help reduce the waste in our landfills. The collection of milk bags help keep them out of the environment where they can harm wildlife and disrupt the ecosystem. As “Stewards of Creation” the milk bags are being put into good use where mats are being made to help with the profound homelessness in the world. The students at Father Francis McSpiritt are actively involved in this social justice project using milk bags and creating sleeping mats and donating the finished mats to help people in need worldwide. This is how we build caring and vibrant communities!
