Upcoming Community Service Sew
CHILD LIFE DOLLS
SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTER | 1300 E 19th Ave | Saturday, October 5, 10am-4pm
This year’s Community Service Sew will focus on dolls and gowns to be donated to Providence Children’s Hospital. These dolls are used by medical professionals as a communication tool for explaining procedures to a child or diagnosing a child’s discomfort. The child is then given the doll and a little hospital gown for the doll, as their own to hold and keep.
Patterns will be provided at September neighborhood meetings, but if you’d like to get started at home, visit tinyurl.com/childlifedolls for patterns from Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
