The Mother’s Comfort Project wants to bring warmth and love to animals in New York City shelters by providing them with comfy homemade beds to curl up in. To help with the project, the Flirt Boutique in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn will be holding a special holiday sewing event on the afternoon of Saturday, December 17th.
The event is sponsored by the Rational Animal Mother’s Comfort Project who are inviting volunteers to sew beds and new toys for animals in the city’s shelters. Volunteers do not need to have any prior sewing experience, as employees of the boutique are happy to offer assistance.
The Mother’s Comfort Project’s goal is to provide animals with warmth during this holiday seasons by having their team create warmer beds for animals to curl up in to shelter them from frigid cold temperature and noise of New York City, further embedding them in a warmer, peaceful environment.
Over 3,500 beds and 2,000 toys have been made through the Mother’s Comfort Project and are brought to Animal Care and Control, providing a comfortable place for a homeless animal to sleep. The Mother’s Comfort Project hopes to reach out to other New York City shelters as well. The event will be held Saturday, December 17th from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. at Flirt (303 Third Ave. near Carroll St. in Park Slope) (718) 852-2889.
