SO-SEW SATURDAY - CHILDREN & VOLUNTEERS

 

CHECK BACK OUT OUR NEW SCHEDULE - SEE BELOW

To date, the Shepherd family has worked together to create over 1100 quilts for the Robyn's Nest (a Children's Hospital affiliation serving children in foster care), the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center, and for La Causa (a crisis center for children ages 0-12).  Please join us this fall as we create quilts for children at The Robyn's Nest and LaCausa, & for patients at the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center. There are many opportunities to serve! We would love for volunteers to join us on Monday afternoons as we prepare the quilts for our Kidz Konnection students to knot (no sewing experience required). We are also looking for a few people to sew around the edges of the quilts. Check out our fall schedule to see how you can make a difference.  Thanks for sharing your gifts!
