Sew for Survivors project organizers report the creation and donation of 163 fabric duffel bags to the Chandler Crisis Response Team and to the Arizona Adoption and Foster Care following a sewing session last month. City of Chandler Recreation Division’s Donald Smith says if Arizona youth have to be removed from their homes due to neglect or abuse, they don’t have to use trash bags as luggage. “They will have a bag to call their own to help ease this transition,” he notes, thanking the Be The Change teen leadership and diversity group for their donations and support of the Sew for Survivors project. Volunteer sewers are continuing to make bags to reach their goal of 300 bags. Info: 480-782-2718.
