Lots of ❤ for this All Member Monthly in February! Members of the Socially Responsible Sweatshop in Kent will talk about the group's grassroots philanthropy made possible by sewing machine, needle and thread. They will have some of their products at the meeting. The group sells their handmade items at the Haymaker Farmers’ Market on Saturdays, and all proceeds go directly to the market so those receiving SNAP benefits can buy $20 in produce every week. Among the items available are bolstered meditation pillows, pet toys and aromatherapy pouches made with herbs from the garden of Mary Ann Kasper, founder of the group.
LWVK members who participate in the Socially Responsible Sweatshop include Barb Hipsman Springer, Jane Preston Rose, Sherry Rose, Edie Grund and Anne Andrews.
