Grace Health and the Kalamazoo Chapter of American Sewing Guild are partnering to provide sleepers for Grace Health’s newborns. On Tuesday, April 12, we will be cutting fabric and assembling kits with directions for sewing safe sleepers. Everyone is invited to drop in and spend an hour or two, or the whole day. Our goal is to make 200 safe sleepers.
Volunteers are needed for:
- Greeting and signing in people
- Cutting fabric into sleeper lengths
- Cutting out the sleepers
- Assembling kits with the necessary parts
- Checking and packing kits into boxes
- Check out kits to Sewing Guild members who will sew at home
When: Tuesday, April 12, 2016
Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Where: Grace Health’s Sanitas Conference Center – Entrance A, 181 West Emmett Street, Battle Creek, MI 49037
When you arrive, come in Entrance A and take either the elevator or stairs to the lower level.
Prevention of infant deaths is a priority of Calhoun County. Sleep related deaths are preventable. Join us on Community Fabric Cutting Day and help us with the safe sleepers so we can keep our youngest members of the community safe.
