Club helps nonprofit with foster children’s needs

Posted

The Rip ’N’ Sew Club in Sun City West has a multi-year history of fulfilling the needs of foster children through Arizona Helping Hands. The latter group is the largest provider of essential needs to the more than 14,000 children in foster care in this state.

Flannel pajama bottoms, cute pillowcases (to go with the new bedding each child receives when entering foster care), reversible drawstring bags to hold belongings when a child moves from one home to another and doll clothes for purchased dolls are some of the items Rip ’N’ Sew has provided.

Club members and the public can learn more about the nonprofit Arizona Helping Hands at Rip ’N’ Sew’s February general meeting.

Bethany Eggleston, director of development at Arizona Helping Hands, will speak Thursday, Feb. 2, shortly after the meeting is called to order at 9:30 a.m. at the Johnson Social Hall, 19803 R.H. Johnson Blvd. The public is invited to hear her talk.

Club members, especially those who participate in the subgroup Sewing From the Heart, began making more drawstring bags this month. Mary Jo Monten is Rip ’N’ Sew’s coordinator with Arizona Helping Hands. Marilyn Zenz heads Sewing From the Heart.
