Using our sewing skills to provide assistance to others is a primary
goal of the Chicago Chapter.
Members are encouraged to take part in projects which benefit
those in need without any anticipation of financial gain.
Organizations such as hospitals, nursing homes, welfare groups,
schools, armed service units, and facilities for the disabled are
among those that benefit from our Community Service participation.
The Community Service Coordinator maintains a file of appropriate
projects and submits semi-annual reports to the National Office
listing receiving organizations, the number of members participating
in projects and the number of hours spent on those projects.

The American Cancer Society has requested our ASG help in sewing for women with breast cancer.
A representative from the North Shore Regional Office of the American Cancer Society has asked for ASG's help in supplying some basic needs
for women with breast cancer. The home-sewn items requested are breast forms, small tote (ditty) bags, small pillows and cases and Anti-Ouch
Pouches. The pattern for the Anti-Ouch Pouch is available on the National ASG.org website. The directions for the other items are on this page.
We hope you will help this worthy cause. None of these items take a lot of time - or fabric - to make and are easily put together. It's a great
chance to show your support of cancer patients and to advance our well received Community Service efforts.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 708-448-5205 to arrange pick-up of completed items or if you have questions. If convenient, completed
items may be dropped off at the ACS North Shore Regional Office at 820 Davis Street, Suite 400, Evanston, IL., Attention Mr. Nirav Shah
