A Serger for the Sewing Circle to Sew Basic Needs

A microproject by Jake's Diapers, Inc. Vetted since 2016 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit
A Serger for the Sewing Circle to Sew Basic Needs

Summary

There are amazingly talented women (aka Super Sewers) who gather at least once a month at Grace Lutheran Church to fix and repair diapers, sew pillowcase dresses & nanny aprons, knit burial gowns, and so much more. This group of 20+ women do this to provide a hand up to the least of these. These simple basic needs provide true joy to those who receive them. To be more efficient, these ladies would truly appreciate a serger to help them sew faster and easier.

Challenge

At our Diaper Drops, in addition to diapers, there are other uncommon needs that we can assist with. The talented sewers use their time and talent to make appropriately sized nanny aprons & burial gowns, as well as repair preloved diapers.

Solution

Funds raised will be used to invest in a quality serger. This means the ladies can do their volunteer work better, faster, and easier!!! It is a true blessing to be able to provide the needed tools so these talented ladies can sew to their best potential!

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society.
