Sewing for Foster Kids with Arizonans for Children

The Sewing Project to Help Foster Kids needs volunteers to sew pillowcases or duffel bags with drawstrings & straps for foster children. In Arizona, when Child Protective Services removes a child from a home, they unfortunately put the child's belongings in black trash bags. Since this project started independently in 2008, over 25,000 pillowcase bags have been sewn and delivered to foster youth. Fabric and cording is provided. If you have a sewing machine available, please bring it! Volunteers can visit the Fostering Love Website or the Craft and Fabric Links Website for a pillowcase pattern. For more information, volunteers can also visit the Sewing Project Website or Sew for Foster Kids Link

The minimum age to volunteer is 12 years old. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Volunteers who are 16 and 17 and wish to volunteer without a parent/guardian must bring a signed Youth Waiver to each project.

By signing up for volunteer opportunities and not attending, you may be depriving someone else the chance to participate and the project of much-needed support. Please note that in an effort to accommodate volunteers who sign up for opportunities by choice, HandsOn does NOT accept court ordered volunteers and will NOT sign off on any court-related documents.
