Pack a Pencil Case

Helping to alleviate some financial stress for families, as well as supporting students' literacy development at school or home was the goal of our club's Pack a Pencil Case Project. 200 colourful and fun patterned pencil cases were sewn by members and local community members and were then filled with a variety of stationery items. Two successful fundraisers, generous community folk and discounts from local businesses covered the cost of the stationery and zips. Nine local schools and 4 support agencies gratefully accepted the pencil cases to distribute at their discretion.

Remnants Revitalised

The Altrusa Club of Ashburton considered what to do with many leftover fabrics from their Fabric Bazaar. After requests from the local schools, the community and the neo natal unit in Christchurch, the service committee planned 4 sewing days. One for Days for Girls, one to organise the Cuddle Hearts for premature babies, one to sew curtains for the Presbyterian Support curtain bannk and another day to complete small sanitary bags for schools.
