For some students, learning to sew opens up new opportunities for them, learning a new skill, becoming independent, learning how to become creative in design and skills to share their art by making gifts for family and friends. Teens Sew Cool provides an opportunity for teens and pre-teens living in Oracle, San Manuel and Catalina area to learn those skills, but we can’t do it alone without the generous sponsors like SaddleBrooke Community Outreach.
SaddleBrooke Community Outreach recently presented a check to Teens Sew Cool for $1,000 to help fund the many sewing projects done during our class sessions and for our gifting of new sewing machines to worthy students in Teens Sew Cool program.
SaddleBrooke Community Outreach is an all-volunteer not-for-profit. Its mission is providing opportunities for kids to succeed.
Recently we donated a new sewing machine at the San Manuel location to a student of four years in Teens Sew Cool. Nevaeh Derrick, 11 years old, received a new Brothers Project Runway machine. Nevaeh has demonstrated all the skills the TSC required for submitting a student to be considered for the Gifting Program. This would not have been possible without the generous contribution of SaddleBrooke Community Outreach.
We continue to evaluate other students that may qualify for the Sewing Machine Gifting Program in the coming weeks.
Teens Sew Cool is always in need of fabrics and sewing notions as well as volunteers. Go to the website www.teenssewcool.org for more details.
