Members of Boulder United Methodist Church are again participating in “Days for Girls” -- an effort to improve feminine hygiene for women and girls worldwide -- and need volunteers to help or provide needed supplies.
From 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 8 at Methodist Fellowship Hall in Boulder, they will gather to assemble kits including washable, reusable sanitary supplies for those with no reliable access to the items.
“This is the fourth time we will have gathered to work on the kits,” Marilyn Craft said in an emailed statement.
The group is looking for experienced quilters/sewers and people to cut fabric and iron the materials that will go into the feminine hygiene kits, Craft wrote.
Needed supplies include fabric scissors, 28 mm or larger rotary cutters, cutting mats, irons and ironing boards, sewing machines, 100% polyester thread pins and “any other sewing supplies you think may be helpful.”
“Please be sure your sewing machine has a good quality needle.,” Craft wrote. “We are hoping someone has a serger they can bring to use!”
Craft added that “there are many things non-sewers can do, so don’t hesitate if sewing is not your thing.”
