Our Commitment to Community Service

Our chapter like a lot of other chapters nationwide are committed to helping in our community. We take seriously the idea that many hands can make light work.

​We sew clothing and other items to give to organizations that help those less fortunate than ourselves. ​ We have lots of fun and it’s such a joy to sew for others.

To learn more about the agencies that we donate too, just click on the photos for links to the agency listed.
