PW MISSIONS & CURRENT EVENTS
EVERYONE IS INVITED TO PARTICIPATE!
KNIT, CROCHET and SEW
Please continue making 7” x 9” knit or crocheted blocks that will be sewn together to make afghans that will be distributed to homeless people or to people in nursing homes (adults and children). A group of ladies in Duquesne who used to take part in the Warm UP America! Project at Pat Catan’s will assemble the afghans and distribute them.
I’m also hoping that Little Dresses for Africa are still being crafted and they will be shipped in the Fall. Any dress pattern can be used, but I have the pattern for a simple-to-make dress that can be made from pillowcases or yard goods. If you don’t want to sew but have un-needed fabric, bias tape, or trims, please consider donating them to PW to be made into dresses by our talented seamstresses. If you have any questions about either of these projects, please call me, Nancy Rogers, 412-372-3397.
Currently, there are no on-site volunteer opportunities with MC, but there is still a need for those very welcome Care Packages from the folks back home. Military Connections has sent millions of packages to our troops overseas since the organization was established in 2003 and has continued its mission during COVID-19. You can help purchase snacks and other needed items or help pay the shipping cost (about $30/box) for the packages by donating cash or Walmart, Sam’s Club, or Amazon gift cards which can be mailed to Military Connections, 312 Auburn St., Pittsburgh, PA 15235. Visit the MC website – militaryconnections.org – or contact me for more information on the work of Military Connections.
Until the Last One Comes Home
