CRESTVIEW — Members of the Crocheted Mats for the Homeless group met April 11 in Mossy Head to work on mats and present them to the Front Porch Ministry of DeFuniak Springs.

Participants meet regularly throughout the week in different locations across Northwest Florida. This was their second-Tuesdays Mossy Head meeting.

The group visits schools and churches and teaches them how to make the mats. They also seek volunteers to help make them. This includes flattening and cutting bags to use, plus crocheting the mats.
