Refugee support opportunity

GIG (Gals in Guatemala) will be participating in a mission trip to McAllen, TX, in October, working with the Sacred Heart Respite Center, where 200+ refugees a day are being welcomed and serviced. If you sew, we invite you to make pillow covers with a zipper for 12 x 16 inch pillows for the refugees. We will take the pillow covers with us and will order the pillows and have them shipped to McAllen. If you don’t sew, but would like to help, gift cards from Joann’s Fabrics or Amazon, or cash donations would help cover the cost of the pillows. Please see/contact Carolyn Thalman ( for more information and suggested instructions for making the pillows.
