To help support the Days for Girls mission of creating a more free, dignified, and educated world, through providing lasting access to feminine hygiene solutions and health education, the EMRC will be hosting a kit making session 6:00PM – 8:00PM on Monday, August 21st at Commercial Furniture Solutions (4301 Highway 7, St Louis Park).  Judy Johnson, from the Maple Grove Rotary, will lead the training.  No sewing skills are required.  There will be a variety of tasks.  A few sewing machines will be available.  However, please feel free to bring your own machine if you would prefer.  Light food and drinks will be provided.  All who want to help are welcome!  RSVP to either Julie Madison – juliemadison@mac.com or Chris Kennedy – ckennedy3@comcast.net
We will also be collecting items for the kits at Rotary meetings leading up to the event:
  • Girls cotton underpants (sizes 8-14)
  • Washed flannel (dark & wild patterns best)
  • 100% cotton (smallest size 5”x5” and dark & wild patterns are best)
  • Washcloths
