On Friday, March 11, 2011, guests at The Textile Museum’s PM @ the TM: Midnight at the Oasis after-hours event collaborated and worked together to hand stitch nearly thirty stuffed felt owls to donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington, DC. The activity gave museum visitors the opportunity to practice simple hand sewing skills while contributing to a project that gave back to the community.
These colorful stuffed owls were delivered to their new homes and families at the Ronald McDonald House on Friday, March 22. The Textile Museum staff also contributed to the cause and donated various household items from the Ronald McDonald House’s wishlist.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Washington, DC provides a temporary home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill children who are being treated at DC hospitals. Please visit their website to learn more about this organization and their commitment to improving the health and well-being of children.
