We’ve had a volunteer request that we are sharing with anyone who has sewing expertise and a little time on their hands.
Michelle Roberts and colleague, Carrie Crowley work for the Ministry for Children of Family Development. They are putting forward a “Dress Boutique” on Monday, May 29th , for youth in foster care (or other marginalized youth) who are in need of a grad dress (or suit) for their graduation ceremony.
They are looking for people with sewing expertise to attend on the 29th (10am – 3pm at our office) to assist with alterations. The alterations would need to be done prior to the grad or formal event of course. If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please pass on the contact details below.
If you have any clothing that you would like to donate, they are also still looking for dresses (casual, dressy, formal… anything really) to be donated for this purpose as well so feel free to spread the word.
Please contact Michelle directly:
