The Sleeping Bag Project


There is never a shortage of things to do or see in the Hub City. If you are looking for something to do, we encourage you to sift through the many events listed here.

If you would like to add your own event, you can do that by clicking here. This form is for promoting an event via the calendar, only. It is not for reserving community centers or spaces. Please see the following guidelines for posting requirements:

  • Listed events must have a point of contact or link for more information (website, ticketing vendor or Facebook event).
  • All events will be submitted for review before being published, with approval in 24-48 hours. If an event is not approved, the point of contact listed on the event will be contacted.
  • A photo for uploading is helpful, but not required.
  • All events should take place in the City of Hattiesburg.
  • The City of Hattiesburg reserves the right to approve or deny any event listing and to edit the content submitted for final publication.
  • The posting of an event does not provide for the event being  endorsed through the status of being “city-sanctioned” (approval needed by the City Council) or “city-sponsored.” However, both city-sanction and city-sponsored events will also be listed here.

NOTE: Submitting an event for publication on the calendar is not the same as filing for a permit to host an event that requires the use of city property, streets or needs traffic support. For permits, you’ll need to submit a permit application to the Hattiesburg Police Department. The application can be downloaded here: Event & Parade Permits.

Christian Services, 301 East 2nd St
Hattiesburg, MS 39401 United States

Fellowship with others while we build SLEEPING BAGS and PLASTIC MATS for those in need in our community. Old clothing such as t-shirts, orphan socks, scrap fabrics, etc. provide the stuffing between queen/king sized sheets and blankets. They are then secured, and ties are added in order to created straps. The plastic bags are tied and crocheted together to create the plastic mats.
Can’t sew? No problem! These sleeping bags and mats are fairly simple to make and even easier to accomplish with others. Plus, there will be people there to guide you step by step along the process.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR DONATIONS! To help create these unique sleeping bags and mats, we need a little help. Pins, Darning Needles, Sewing Needles, Light weight cottons, batting, scissors, measuring tape, and crochet hooks that are larger than 10 m (i.e. 15 mm or 16 mm are ideal) Any little bit helps keep someone warm.
If this is something you are interested in, call us to SIGN UP TODAY!!! Thank you so much and we hope to see you there! 601.582.5683
