Today we give thanks and say a BIG thank you to our donors. In the three years that we've been offering sewing classes to refugee women, we have been the grateful recipients of a number of monetary gifts. Out of the generosity of their hearts, our donors have blessed the women and the work of Make Welcome with generous financial gifts.
When we began the Sewing Machine Sponsorship program, we solicited donations through a rally.org fundraiser. Many friends of Make Welcome donated to the fund, enabling us to supplement to underwrite the cost of sewing machines for many of our students.
In addition, in these past three years, a number of people have given unsolicited and very much appreciated financial gifts for us to use in whatever way we need. We have purchased sewing machines for use in class, as well as other supplies and tools.
Our supporters have also contributed to the work of Make Welcome by purchasing desired supplies from our amazon wish lists. We have lists for both the sewing program and the childcare program. We are so grateful to the folks who have helped to supply our programs by purchasing directly from these wishlists.
We wouldn't be where we are today without from the generosity of so many! We are grateful for you and for your generosity and we say THANK YOU so much for you part in supporting the work of Make Welcome!
