If you have a sewing machine and can sew a straight line, the Lawrence Humane Society could use your help.
The shelter, 1805 E. 19th St., has a large collection of used comforters that can easily be cut and sewed to make smaller dog beds. In doing so, one large comforter can be made into four, six or even more individual beds that can be used, washed and reused. Thanks to several volunteers, this project is already under way, but the Humane Society needs many more helpers so all of its homeless dogs can have a soft, warm bed every night.
If you can help, e-mail the shelter at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 843-6835.
