Nonprofit seeks volunteers to help sew holiday stockings for overseas military members

Ken Reabe Jr. | For The Tribune-Review
A portion of the large group of volunteers sewing holiday stockings for the non-profit organization Military Connections are seen on Thursday, Aug. 18, 2016 at Murrysville Alliance Church in Murrysville. This year's sewing day will be July 23, 2018.

Nonprofit group Military Connections is seeking volunteers as its members gear up for their annual sewing day, creating stockings that will be stuffed and shipped to military men and women stationed overseas at Christmas time.

Military Connections and members of the American Sewing Guild will be at Murrysville Alliance Church from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Aug. 23, to create stockings from kits cut out by guild members this spring.

Volunteers are asked to bring a sewing machine in good working order, along with an extension cord and basic sewing supplies.

To RSVP, email Rusty Frankoski at [email protected] .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
