Many thanks to all of the Volunteers who along with Members donated materials and time to make our ‘Be a Shoemaker’ event successful. We were able to cut fabric and plastic patterns to assemble 80 pairs of shoes! There are women continuing work to complete 150 total pairs.
The cut and pinned shoe materials will be sent to Uganda in April. In Uganda the patterned materials are assembled and sewn into the completed shoe.
We are also excited the Belleville News Democrat came to visit and share the news.
Our next event is May 24th at 6:30pm in Christ Church Coffee Cafe. Members will be voting for this years grant candidates. More information regarding this event will be available soon.
