Cutting and Kitting Night 2018 – New Night

2 May


The Teresa Toda Sister Community Committee invites you to our annual “Cutting and Kitting Night” in the St. Ed’s Auditorium on Monday, May 21 from 6:30-8:30 PM (or until done). No need to commit to the whole time, come when you can! On this evening, we will “cut” the materials and package them into “kits” for the girls to do at camp. This preparation makes our time there more efficient and enjoyable. It’s a fun night out.

All are welcome to join the women who are going to the Teresa Toda Home for poor girls in July for an evening of sharing, cutting, and kitting. Whether your are considering joining us in the Dominican Republic or are not able to, this is a great way to contribute to this exciting mission. Several camp alumna will be there, too! Contact Ann through this blog.
