Whats' good in the neighborhood.
Don Bosco Project
This project is meant to be an ongoing mission to help provide gifts for birthdays and Christmas in perpetuity for the youth lodged at the Juvenile Detention Center. Our family has already made two dozen stockings from materials on hand and is in the process of making UGLY quilts (which stands for Unconditionally, God Loves You), but we need your help.
What can you do?
If you are a quilter, you could help us with our UGLY quilt project. Any design is fine as long as it incorporates the letters U, G, L, and Y and a center block of a guardian angel which will be provided upon request. (These blocks are also available online) If you are a sewer or crafter, you could make other small items for stocking stuffers. For instance, hair scrunchies can be made simply out of scrap fabric for little cost and would give great delight to the girls at the center. (Be sure to contact us first, however, as there are items that are on the restricted list.) Other donations to help to defray the cost of these projects would be much appreciated, such as quilt batting, serger thread, angel center blocks and cash.
If you are interested in helping, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 788-2598.
Thank you for your help. The Connellys
