Days for Girls Lenten Project

Starts:     Feb 13, 2016 @ Saturdays Feb. 13 and 27, and March 12, 9 a.m. - noon   Ends:     Mar 12, 2016 @  

The UMW is sponsoring three work days during Lent to make kits for the Days for Girls project. These kits will contain reusable feminine hygiene products for girls in Third World countries who are missing school because of a lack of available products.

We need your help to cut fabric, iron, sew, serge, apply snaps, insert drawstrings and assemble kits. We will work in the classrooms in the gym from 9 a.m. - noon on three Saturdays: February 13, 27 and March 12.

You may also donate cash or purchase gallon Ziploc Freezer bags, solid or flowered cotton panties for girls size 10-14 (no cartoon characters, etc.), washcloths, or “hotel” size soaps.

For more information contact Joyce Perry, 763-6613 or joyce.perry@cox.net. Check out their website at www.daysforgirls.org.

Thanks, Thanks, Thanks! From Days for Girls

THANKS to you, 50 girls will receive kits containing reusable feminine hygiene products which will improve their quality of life.

THANKS for your donations of panties, washcloths, bags and cash.

THANKS to all who worked on the Saturday sew days, and join us again during these next work days!
  Be Welcomed. Be Loved.

We are a Christian community called to share our gifts through worship, witness and service so that others will know God and become disciples of Jesus Christ.
