I have been a long-time volunteer serving in a variety of settings for the past thirty plus years. Being retired these past eight years, it has been especially meaningful as it provides me purpose and much-needed social interaction.
I learned of Sew Good Goods, a nonprofit organization based in St. Paul, MN which provides hand-sewn items to charitable organizations from my friend, Fey. Donated fabrics are assembled into kits which are then distributed to volunteers like me who in turn create needed items. Upon completion, they are returned and distributed to the organizations. I’ve been sewing face masks for them. I’ve also been making masks for family and friends. My daughter is working at ShipIt and keeps a quantity with her to pass out. The kids particularly enjoy them.
