Earth Connection is a school of primitive skills and wilderness survival located in Northern Virginia and North Carolina (Raleigh/Durham area) that has been in existence for over a decade. Our hands-on classes are reasonably priced because we don't believe in big price tags for primitive skills. That's just not natural!

Sleeping Bags For The Homeless

Drop- Mail-Bring a Sleeping Bag for the Homeless

Hundreds of people in Earth Connection School area rely on urban survival skills to stay fed and warm. We are making a choice to help provide a warm sleeping bag for the New Year to those less fortunate.

The local shelters that we are donating sleeping bags to have requested 0 degree bags, new-or-used & washed, and in Child-to-Adult sizes. The sleeping bags should be synthetic fiber fill that stay warm even when wet (unlike down), but any bags will do.

You can help in three ways:
  • Drop off a bag: Sunday,December 30 from 12 noon to 4pm at our Earth Connection camp near Fredericksburg, Virginia
  • Mail in a bag: to Earth Connection, PO Box 32, Somerville, VA 22739
  • Bring a bag: to one of our classes in January, February or March
Please email to RSVP if you are coming out on December 30.

We will have hot chocolate and roast marshmallows by the campfire. There will be coupons for discounted EC classes and other tokens of our thanks for each bag donated.

We will be thinking other ways to help throughout the year.

Stay Warm... and Help Others Stay Warm Too.
Tim and Hue
