Lawrence Education Center (LEC) will donate 50 chair packs to Matheny-Withrow on Wednesday, March 9, at 1:45 p.m. in the Matheny-Withrow gymnasium.
LEC students have participated in 10 sewing workshops as a result of the ‘Exploring Careers through Sewing and Food Service Project’. The project taught students how to cut a pattern from fabric, pin, fold and sew seams and pockets and iron completed fabric. The chair pack donation is the culminating activity as outlined and funded by a Springfield Public Schools Foundation grant. The chair packs hang on the backs of chairs and hold books, papers and supplies.
