CoxHealth Sewing Day for Kids

Looking for a great summer activity for your child? The CoxHealth Sewing Day for Kids is perfect! Children learn to sew or can practice sewing during a free event that benefits patients.

Led by CoxHealth Volunteers, Children will stuff and sew eye pillows, heart pillows for patients to use following open-heart surgery, and no-sew blankets that are provided to patients. The materials are supplied through a grant from CoxHealth Auxiliary.

“Children love participating in this activity,” says Pat Long, Volunteer Services. “They know that what they’re doing is helping patients, which gives them great joy.”

Want to help? Anyone handy with a needle and thread are also welcome to sign up and volunteer to help at CoxHealth Sewing Day with Kids.

CoxHealth Sewing Day for Kids is Friday, July 10, 10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. in the Fountain Plaza Room at Cox North, 1423 N. Jefferson, Springfield. Lunch will be provided by Dominos. Seating is limited. Call 417-269-4169 to register.
