– there’s just something about President Obama that……well, when he says jump……you kind of want to go “How High!” – That was the case when the Brooklyn for Barack crew asked SROE to participate in their participation in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Presidential Call to Service. Organizations all across the United States were requested to work with volunteers in a variety of ways helping to give back to their communities.
For over three years, SROE has received bolts of fabric from interior design companies, cases sample prints from fashion houses and bags of vintage textiles from beloved aunts and grandmothers. These items have grown to fill a 10 x 10 storage unit, which has been maintained out of pocket by its directors for two years running. We REALLY needed the help.
And Help Came.
20 volunteers came throughout the MLK Jr. Weekend to fold, carry, organize tie and re pack our storage area!
