LYNDEN - People are invited to a sewing event on Saturday, March 9, hosted by Days for Girls International.
The 1 p.m. event in the gym of the Clay residence, 776 H St. Road in Lynden, is part of a celebration of International Women's Day.
Lynden-based Days for Girls International provides feminine hygiene kits to impoverished women and girls around the world. Without such supplies, they are isolated for days during menstruation, according to the nonprofit.
Days for Girls International will provide sewing experts, sewing machines, fabric and all necessary supplies to make the kits during the Saturday event.
Each kit has two shields and eight liners that volunteers will sew.
As part of the event, the organization also is accepting donations of fabric for the shields and bags (prewashed if possible), flannel for liners, panties in women's sizes five and six, washcloths, safety pins and gallon size freezer bags (Ziploc) brand.
