This Saturday (11/21) a few totally outstanding volunteers moved Sew for HOPE out of mini-storage and into the new school and some took other items home with them. We won’t be putting our things away though since we have no cabinets or shelving yet. At least we’ll be out of storage, those places are expensive!
Please be advised that this is still a construction site and caution is advised. At this time there are 3 steps coming into the building and no hand rail.
We’re planning on having a work day Saturday, December 5, from 9 – 3. On that day we’ll put our things away if the cabinets are finished. If you’d like to make a donation for this need, please reply to me. If the cabinets don’t get installed, we’ll still meet so folks can drop off finished blankets and pick up kits.
At this point, we’re relying on volunteers to work on projects at home. There will always be a demand for kids blankets at the shelter. We’re very concerned that we haven’t been able to provide as many twin size blankets as is needed. If you’re receiving this message and do not sew, please consider purchasing a twin size blanket that a kid would just love to have. Please consider making Sew for HOPE and HOPE Community Kids the recipients of your Holiday charitable giving. Children from newborn to 21 years of age are eligible to receive a blanket, so we need all sizes and styles. Lately though there have been more families with older kids arriving at the shelter.
Until we get settled we are not accepting donations of fabric.
Thanks for all you do,
