Sew aprons for a women’s shelter kitchen
This service opportunity is now closed. Please choose from a list of our current opportunities.
LaSalle is a second-stage shelter for mothers and their children who have left domestic violence and are working towards strength and independence.
When it is safe to do so, the women have a weekly workshop in the collective kitchen where they put together healthy recipes and learn about meal planning and cooking, so a collection of sturdy aprons to fit various shapes and sizes would be appreciated.
Any pattern for a bib-style apron would be fine. Other than a pocket to store keys, they ask that you keep decoration to a minimum, so germs have fewer places to hide.
When you sign up, we’ll send you a suggested pattern and locations to pick up or drop off finished aprons. If you haven’t already, you’ll need to register for yegSpark first.
