Cutting out strips of fabric for a Day of Service freshmen project, junior and club-founder Fatima Shahab and junior Brooke Gangel construct dog toys to be donated to the Humane Society. Crafting for a Cause meets once a month to focus on a new project and create hand-made items to donate to different organizations. “The goal is to make something or have some sort of project to donate or help someone in some way,” Shahab said. “I decided to start Crafting for a Cause because I really like crafting and sewing. I wanted to combine my hobby with helping others and I thought this was a good way to do that.”
