As part of an ongoing effort led by the Evening Group members, women of the Frederick Woman’s Civic Club Inc. (Maryland) gathered on January 19th, 2023 to sew “capes for kids” for children served by the Children of Incarcerated Parents Partnership (COIPP) and the Child Advocacy Center of Frederick County, Maryland. The capes are intended to help children through times of trauma and stress and symbolize strength and bravery. Nearly 60 capes over the past several months have been made, and more sewing sessions are planned.
