Next week, ISU will be collecting plastic bags.

Anyone in the community is invited to bring bags.

Students will be making "plarn" or plastic yarn out of the bags.

A local church will turn the plarn into blankets.

It is a way to help the homeless in Terre Haute.

The event will be in the Stalker Quad on Wednesday, April 18th.
