Global Gives Back —

A service initiative to promote the practice of "Paying it Forward" 

To kick off Global Gives Back, S&T Global Learning has launched the "Sleeping Mats for the Homeless, " project. This service project is open to the campus community and area residents. 

If you would like to participate, there are a couple of ways you can get involved.


Check out a Kit

We have kits for making plarn and ones for crocheting the mats depending on your interests. Your kit will come with instructions and the materials needed, so you won't have to supply any materials. 

Contact Meg Brady at or call  (573) 341-4845 to check out your kit.

Attend a Drop-in Event

Drop-in Plarn Making and Crocheting events are held from 3-5 p.m., every second Monday of the month in the lobby of the S&T Library. This is a great way to learn the process through hands-on instruction while socializing with others.  Look for announcements in the eConnection and on the S&T calendar of events.
