Ladies, please start saving the following items which we will be using to “upcycle” into our sewing kits for this year’s community outreach program:
Promotional refrigerator magnets (you know, those business card sized magnets for the local pizza delivery shop, vet or realtor). Don’t go grabbing piles from local businesses, but please do save the ones that you no longer need. We could use an additional 30 magnets (but have it covered if you don’t have any laying around).
Buttons – either white, ecru, brown or black. Raid your button jar for buttons that can be used to repair shirt or pants which are part of the Arnold Elementary Uniforms (their colors are maroon, khaki, and white). We’re not looking for exotic or sparkly buttons — serviceable run- of-the-mill is what we need!!!
We could use 15-20 more Altoid tins — we’ll make as many kits as we have tins … but 50 is our target!
Turn these items in to Mary Hodges at any program or stitch in. If you can’t find Mary, any board member could get them to her.
