A contest that challenged adults and kids to design and sew unique tote bags is spinning off into a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity.
The 16 bags created are now on display at Findlay’s Vacuum and Sewing World store on Tranquille Road. The totes are up for public votes as well as silent auction.
The adult and child whose entries get the most votes take away a new sewing machine and starter sewing kit, respectively.
And the money raised from the silent auction of those totes goes to Habitat for Humanity. Voting ends Saturday at 2 p.m., but the silent auction goes until Nov. 15. Habitat’s next construction project in Kamloops is slated for next year.
Habitat for Humanity Kamloops has built three duplexes that have now provided six families with their own affordable housing.
