The Sewing Group that meets at the Putnam Valley Friendship Center wanted to find a new idea to do something to give back to the community. Since all of the seniors love their pets, an idea came into play. In the past, this group has made many pillows which were given out during the holidays to our homebound seniors. Making these pillows gave the Putnam Valley Sewing Group so much joy. The group is aware of the needs of the Putnam County Humane Society and thought they could give joy to some of the animals housed at the Humane Society and thought that making dog toys would fit the bill. What they are doing is taking old T-shirts, cutting them into strips and then braiding the strips into dog toys. The group has been asking for donations of the T-shirts from the seniors who attend the Friendship Center and families. As you can see in the picture, they are having a great time doing this together and hope to be able to donate our toys for the Holiday Season.
