Tuesday, Taking Care of Girls

Tuesday morning began with a trip to the mobile mammography van.  Time for my own “girls” to have their annual squish-o-gram.  I am happy to see the feedback from so many of you who take care of their own “girls.”  It’s a quick, relatively painless, exam that can save your life.

From Lexington Medical Center, it was a short drive to Northeast Presbyterian Church for the monthly luopad sew day.  “Girls” in Columbia, SC, empowering girls in Zimbabwe.  I was so happy to see Tonya, Avery and Serena Romriell, Theresa Justice and meet her friend June McAlhaney.

Susie Necker reports we had 26 attendees today with 16 sewing machines.  Seven volunteers attended for the first time.  We loved having you join us and hope you come back again.

109 pads completed today with a large box of almost finished pads ready to top stitch next month.

249 pads made at home (200 already with snaps attached).

358 pads ready for delivery today.

 

This brings the total of pads made by NEPC Ladies Freedom Project Volunteers to 3022.

Mark your calendar for our next sew day on Tuesday, August 23rd.  You don’t need to know how to sew to participate.  There are many non-sewing parts of this project that you can help with.

A definitely productive day.
