Lansing Clippers members use their sewing skills to help our community. Over the years, our group has helped many different community charity organizations. For Example, we have sewn:
clothing for children and donated them to Children's Closet.
pajamas for homeless children and adults at a shelter in Lansing.
cloth drawstring bags for Helping Women Period
fidget quilts for people in nursing homes.
Community Service Project for 2024
We have chosen to support three (3) different charities this year. The Ronald McDonald House, The Foster Closet of Michigan, and local animal shelters.
Ronald McDonald House
RMHC provides comfort, care and support for families with children who are sick... Helping Families Feel At Home Even When They Can't Be.

Local Animal Shelters
In 2023, our guild donated nearly 50 pet beds to the Ingham County Animal Shelter. In 2024, we plan to continue these efforts and potentially expand into neighboring counties represented by our guild members.
