2016 SFR Service Projects:

Reusable Bags. Reusable tote or grocery bags may be made from feed bags, leftover sturdy fabric, canvas, burlap or even old T-shirts. 4-H is promoting the use of unwanted materials to make sturdy, stylish and eco-friendly tote bags. Enjoy making them, donate them within your county and encourage everyone to keep some reusable bags on hand. SFR encourages members to research needs within their own communities for the donations. Ideas are local food banks (for food distribution), the library (for checking out children’s books especially in the winter), homeless shelters, and non-profit thrift stores who may give away or sell them. What about asking if you can set up a table at holiday time to give bags away as people enter the local grocery store with a display about eliminating single-use plastic bags? You could even use them to hold holiday gifts instead of wrapping paper. There are many online tutorials, just be sure to reinforce the seams by stitching twice or zig-zagging them.

PORT PILLOWS for cancer patients who have a portacath for chemo infusions. Wearing a seat belt irritates the port, so these little pillows cushion that area and make driving more comfortable. Supplies for one pillow are a 12" X 6" piece of soft cotton fabric, a 4" piece of 1/2" velcro (both the hook part and the loop part) , fiberfill, thread and a sewing machine. The Port Pillows can be donated locally in your county to a cancer center or the American Cancer Society.
