WHERE DO I START?
On the official Days for Girls website, watch a few videos to be inspired by this outreach, then gather your girlfriends and daughters and decide how you will donate or help with our Rexburg event in January 2016.
WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONATED?
Google Doc of donations and needs Add your name to the document for things you can donate or do for the event. The document should save and update automatically and you will see what others have already agreed to bring. Add your email so we can make contact as January approaches.
All descriptions are on the google doc. If you have a stash of fabric to donate, please wash and iron it first. Make sure it fits the description of the proper colors and patterns acceptable. For those purchasing items, Porter’s in Rexburg and JoAnn’s in Idaho Falls both have sales and coupons frequently, so keep your eyes open for those.
If you would prefer to donate cash, contact Leslie or Holly so we can see how best to handle the donation. There will probably be cash needs for shipping when the kits are finished, and Holly will get back to you with those details.
The first gathering will be Saturday January 16th, 2016 at 1pm. This will be the cutting out party. This will be the gathering to cut the all the fabric. Teenage and older for this event. Map to Kathy Parson’s house will come shortly.
Kathy Parson’s house is 298 S 12 W. If you are leaving Rexburg city center on Main Street, turn left (South)
at the light that’s by Valley Wide. You’ll be turning onto 12th W. Kathy’s house is a few houses
down the street, on the R hand (West) side of the street. Its next to an LDS chapel.
All the cut fabric will be sent home with the seamstresses who will complete their sewing within a week or so. Or we might encourage some sewing and ironing at the cutting out event. Much of the sewing will be done at home. Then volunteers will gather again to put together the final kits. Younger girls are also invited to participate with this final event. Time and Place to be announced shortly.
