Volunteers will prepare components for kits to be distributed internationally. There are many things volunteers can do to help make the kits, both sewing and non-sewing tasks. Please bring a pair of sharp scissors labeled with your name. If you have a sewing machine or serger that you know how to use, please bring it.
