At the June meeting Sew Crazy began a new project to benefit “Cap the Gap,” a non-profit organization whose purpose is meet the needs of foster children in Carter, Johnson and Unicoi counties. When a child lives in foster care, the state provides only the basic needs of food and shelter. Cap the Gap maintains a supply closet of emergency supplies (clothes, toiletries, snacks) and also provides a ways for DCS staff to request funds for special circumstances (school activities, Christmas presents).Not too long ago Sew Crazy received a large donation of lovely knit fabrics that we are using to make children’s clothes in sizes 3-6 for the supply closet. Items for both girls and boys are needed.Please bring all completed items for “Cap the Gap” to the August meeting, or contact Donna if you need to make arrangements to drop them off somewhere else.
