American Cancer Society sews pillowcases for children

American Cancer Society (ACS) hosted its recurring Sew for Kids event, in which students assembled pillowcases to be distributed at children’s hospitals Sunday, Feb. 19 at the Sew N’ Sew shop in Glendora.

Members measured, cut and sewed together the edges of the fabric. Afterwards, they ironed and packaged the finished product to deliver to the children. This event primarily focuses on spreading kindness as well as raising awareness for those affected by illnesses at a young age.

“This is one of my favorite ACS events because you get to actually involve yourself in making a difference,” freshman Ryan Kim said. “I enjoy working [at] this event because it’s fun, and I know it’s for a good cause. It brightens my day when I know that I have helped to bring joy to at least one child in the hospital.”
