How Your Gifts Help Us…
Our leadership team at the cooperative currently includes a master seamstress, a master knitter, and a project manager. With your help we’ll continue to grow the team so that together they can serve more children in their community and strengthen their program. Our staffing budget also ensures we can pay our cooperative members a good amount for their piece-work.
Our current facility is a room at the Needs Care School. With your help we pay the rent, make upgrades, and do our best to keep it nice. Some-day we’ll need our own building – and your help will be vital.
Sewing rooms have constant equipment needs, from machines to tools – the cornerstone of a good sewing studio is the quality of the equipment. By giving monthly you help us constantly work to improve the equipment available in the workshop.
