Days for Girls Sew-A-Thon

The Days for Girls Sew-A-Thon is Sunday, May 5, from 1:30 to 4 p.m. at the Shoreview Library, 4560 Victoria St. N. The event will create washable feminine hygiene kits for girls in developing countries. Join community volunteers and the Roseville and Maple Grove Rotary clubs to help break the cycle of poverty. In many developing countries, having a way to manage her cycle keeps a girl in school. Staying in school means a girl can avoid the challenges of early marriage and childbirth, and set her up for a lifetime of opportunities. 

Don’t sew? No problem! There are jobs for non-sewing adults and older children such as pinning, applying snaps, threading, pressing and cutting. Sewers are especially welcome. Bring your sewing machine, if you can, and your favorite scissors. Supplies will be available, but the event will also be accepting donations. 

The event is presented by Days for Girls, which increases access to menstrual care and education by developing global partnerships, cultivating social enterprises, mobilizing volunteers and innovating sustainable solutions that shatter stigmas and limitations for women and girls.
