A New Year to sew for Days for Girls International feminine hygiene kits and shower caddies for the residents of Indianapolis’s Wheeler Mission for Women and Children.

A local group of friends and colleagues deliver functional gift bags @ Christmas to WM for 72 women.  Shower caddies are made of outdoor fabric with four exterior pockets.  The bags are filled with socks, gloves, nail polish, note pads, calendar, marker and many more small gifts.  Here we go again in 2020!
