Sewing Machines for El Salvador

-A A +A

Do you happen to have a portable sewing machine you’re no longer using?  Our Mission & Outreach Team is collecting portable sewing machines to be shipped to our friends at the Salvadoran Association for Rural Health – ASAPROSAR. These machines will be distributed by ASAPROSAR staff to women living there to help them support their families by sewing and selling clothing, accessories, home goods, etc.

We’d also love to send fabrics (bolts or remnants of all types), sewing notions, patterns, etc.  So, if you have a machine (in good working order please!) or other sewing notions to donate, please contact Susan Domey-Allen at FairTrade.ucc@gmail.com or Christina Nordstrom at christinanordstrom@comcast.net to coordinate a pickup at the church. Items will be shipped in early fall. Donations to ASAPROSAR are tax deductible. To learn more about this organization please go to www.asaprosar.org
