Volunteers in Action: GFWC Delaware
July 11, 2023
GFWC Delaware showed their support for Ukrainian women through the presentation of this stunning art piece. The embroidery by artist Deborah Johnson was given as a gift of love from GFWC Delaware to the Mitzi Perdue School for Girls in Ukraine.
In a collaborative effort, each flower was individually stitched by different parties. American Red roses representing the USA, Sunflowers for Ukraine, Peach Blossoms for Delaware, Forget Me Nots embroidered by an Alaskan tribe member, and pink roses by young mothers from a Delaware school were stitched to contribute to the gift from GFWC Delaware!
The base Ukraine silk was dyed by artist Johnson to match the blue color in the Ukraine Flag. The piece is entitled “Embracing Ukraine Lives”

When Ann Sebastian left her house to get groceries one day in 2012, she never expected to join the Village Improvement Association of Rehoboth Beach, in Delaware, but she immediately knew she couldn’t say no to the opportunity.
