Material Girls began in February, 2012 to make gifts for the Children’s Christmas Bazaar, held during Hometown Holidays.
Since that time, three additional bazaars have been added to their schedule. The Thursday before the Children’s Christmas Bazaar, they will host a bazaar for children and youth with special needs. On the Sunday, following the two bazaars, the congregation will be able to shop between worship services. During the Community Breakfast,families participating in the paper products program will be invited to shop at no cost.
Additionally, the group is making 100 pairs of felted wool mittens to be distributed to the homeless by Cass Community Social Services.
