Twenty Americom volunteers donated 50 hours toward sorting over 900 wings to be sent to Japan for completion for the Days for Girls organization. Volunteers also cut 300 liners for kits to be distributed all over the world.
“We folded bolts of fabric and cut it to be sewn for the reusable feminine hygiene kits that last 2-3 years” stated Angie Castle from Americom’s Core Committee who organized the event.
Americom is very proud to support such a worthy cause and appreciates all of the efforts of all those who organized and participated in this successful service project.
Days for Girl is committed to supporting a girl throughout her entire lifecycle, from providing her with a DfG Kit, to teaching her health education, to offering training for her when she grows older, so that she can produce DfG Kits and support hygiene needs in her community.
Days for Girls began as a volunteer-run organization. What began in November 2008 as a small yet passionate group of women (and some men!) has rapidly grown into a robust network of more than 50,000 volunteers around the globe.
Our volunteers are organized into Chapters, Teams, Clubs, or Solo Sewists.
Chapters and Teams consist of volunteers who gather together, or work independently, to promote our mission in many ways. Most sew and assemble the DfG Kits, focusing on either complete DfG Kits or specific components. All groups start as a Team and can apply to become a Chapter after meeting certain milestones. Groups range in size from one to hundreds! No matter what aspect of the Days for Girls mission a group focuses on, they are all vital and important to our movement.
