In the grand tapestry of life, there are moments of immense joy and heartbreaking sorrow. In those times of despair, when families find themselves with the emotional pain of mourning the unimaginable loss of a newborn, there is a ray of hope that shines through. This beacon of hope is embodied by Angel Gowns of South Bay, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing comfort and support to families in their hour of greatest need.
Angel Gowns volunteers meet every 3rd Saturday of the month at Waterfront Studios located at 525 N. Harbor Blvd., San Pedro, California 90732.
You don’t need to know how to sew to volunteer. We also need help taking apart gowns, hand sewing appliques, cutting out pattern pieces, and packaging finished gowns. We love the sense of community and purpose, and enjoy sharing each others’ company! Snacks included. Check Current Events & Sew Dates for updated information.
