The Daily Astorian
Days for Girls Astoria Team
is holding an open house and
fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 3
p.m. Saturday at the JoAnn
Fabric and Craft Store, 180
S.E. Neptune Drive. The
team consists of a group of
25 women and girls who sew
reusable feminine hygiene
kits that are delivered to girls
in rural Uganda.
The kits provide girls
with a way to stay in school;
without a way to manage
their periods, the girls stay at
home. By the time they enter
high school, they are aca-

dropping out of school.
Last year, the local group
sewed and delivered 350 full-
sized kits and 200 mini-kits.
The goal this year is to make
500 full-sized kits and raise
money at the event for bar
soap, underpants, washcloths
and a lot of fabric. Donations
