Join the Home Lost Sew-in to make quilts for local families in housing crises

Friday, December 5, 2014 -

1:00pm to 7:00pm

Help us provide quilts for people in a housing crisis this winter

Join CHS, the United Way of Allegheny County, Annie and Griffin of the Home Lost Project this December 5th for the 2nd annual Home Lost Sew-in. We’re looking to recruit 150 volunteers to gather t-shirts, cut them into squares, and sew them together into quilts that we can share with people we serve through our housing programs and street outreach.

The Sew-in will be held at the United Way's offices at 1250 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.

Adults, teens and children 8 and older are welcome to help. Sewing or quilting skills not required!

About the Home Lost Project

The Home Lost Project was started by Annie and Griffin, two O'Hara Elementary students that wanted to do something to help people in housing crises around Pittsburgh. Together, they've worked with hundreds of volunteers to turn donated t-shirts into quilts for individuals and families in crisis.
