On Wednesday, June 5th, the YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh hosted its annual Celebration of Learning to recognize the achievements of the TechGYRLS this school year. The students and parents were treated to an awesome dinner, participated in hands-on STEM activities, and watched the Urban Stitches Foundation students put on their very first fashion show!
Although the students were a bit apprehensive about modeling, eventually they were coerced into showing off their pillows, reversible messenger bags, “Jack” the stuffed rabbit, and fleece pajama bottoms.
The response of the parents, guests and YWCA staff was phenomenal! Everyone was so encouraging and thrilled to see what our young ladies have been working on. Our appreciation goes out to the YWCA staff, parents and to everyone who donated sewing machines and supplies to the Foundation. We would not have been able to get the fledgling program off the ground without your support!
