Join with neighbors, businesses, community members, and friends from all over the world arm-in-arm in making items for orphanages in Ecuador and Africa.
Since the 2013 Humanitarian Project was such a huge success, we are doing it again this year! It is our opportunity to give back to the 3rd world countries that can’t come to Rexburg. We have been the recipient of gifts, talents shared, friendships made over the last 28 years. As a community, we would like to give back. This is an opportunity for country to work with country, neighbor with neighbor in an effort to help those that aren’t’ able to leave their country. This year we have chosen 2 orphanages, one in Ecuador, 1 in Africa to help. We are asking the community to join us in this effort by coming to Porter Park on Wed. July 9th from 1-3 pm to help us work at several different work stations.
1. Baby blankets (cut and tied)
2. Sock Drive
3. Stenciling on white T-shirts
4. Making beaded bracelets
5. Making Mosquito nets
6. ABC Coloring Books
7. Girls only station (donations of girls undergarments and fabric for personal hygiene needed)
