Volunteer threads kindness with sewing


Morgan County Boys & Girls Club volunteer Lori Hume believes in the magic that happens inside the Club. She’s been volunteering now for five months and leads EPIC Sewing, a new initiative at the Club. Hume is also an Advisory board member for MMC.

“I enjoy being a board member and being involved with the club’s programs because it allows me to be more engaged with the youth, she shared.”

For Lori, being a part of EPIC Sewing has allowed he to see how cultivating relationships with youth lead to “to positive impacts.”

 “I really like Mrs. Lori in her sewing class,” Sumyla Hunter, MMC member, shared. “I learned how to use a needle and sew neatly. It’s been fun to tell my family about what I’m learning at the Club.”

Tabitha Lowe, MMCBGC Program Coordinator, said, “Lori has given the members a new outlook on a possible career field. She’s brought an elegant touch to the club.”

Lowe said that Club members have looked forward to their sewing class each week.
