Donations Needed for Days for Girls Event on April 27
Student sews in Days for Girls 2018
Once again Visitation will host a Days for Girls sewing event in Commers Gym on April 27 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Days for Girls is a nationwide organization that provides sustainable and reusable feminine hygiene products for girls and women in developing countries who do not have access to these necessities.

We are asking the Visitation community for donations of new packages of women's underwear and fabric for sewing the feminine hygiene kits. Donation boxes are located in the Heart.


Wishlist:

  • Women's and girl's undergarments: Girl's cotton underwear briefs (no bikini) sizes 12-16 and women's sizes 7-9
  • Fabric:
    • 100% cotton fabric - bright colors
    • 100% cotton flannel - bright colors
    • 100% cotton or cotton/poly for kit bags
    • Please note: florals, paisley, stripes and geometric patterns for the fabric work best because of the restrictions on fabrics that you can see below

**NOTE ABOUT FABRICS: Fabrics MUST be bright, rich colors. Please do not donate light or very dark colors (i.e., navy, dark green, etc.) We are also unable to accept fabric that has prints of animals, bugs, people or faces. Lastly, please don't use camouflage type prints on any of the fabrics.
