Join us to fill the crate to ship to the Philippines to Host the 2nd Manila Tradeswomen Gathering. After the Aug 4th meeting we will switch gears, to focus on Papua New Guinea and putting on the events.
Please bring your donations, ideas, thoughts, feedback, contacts, connections, opinions and questions to the meeting. We are fine with you just dropping and running if you need to. If you have time, we will be unpackaging, sorting, packing, recondition old tools, de-rust, sharpen, repair, oil ...
As per Sisters Rules, this is a potluck. There shall be no meeting of the Sisters without food and fun. If you can, bring something to share, if you don’t have resources or time, no worries, no one has Ever left a Sisters meeting hungry.
Sisters and supportive brothers are asked to look around for what you no longer need in your garages, sheds, tool boxes, bags, buckets and ask others to do so.
Sisters are putting collection buckets on jobsites and at union locals as well as pickle jars to collect change at the dispatch counter.
They are shopping at tool stores for sales, Harbor Freight parking lot sales, Goodwill, the dollar store and where ever they can make a few bucks stretch a bit further..
Many of the needed items are listed on our Amazon Wish List
