The San Jose Mercury News has a holiday wishbook where they talk about people in need and how people can help them. One group in the wishbook is the Yu-Ai Kai Senior Center in San Jose’s Japan Town. The senior center needs new sewing machines, as it has a sewing class for seniors that uses old discontinued sewing machines that constantly breakdown. Extras made from the sewing class are sold at an annual boutique that benefits Yu-Ai Kai. The class offers not only sewing but a chance for seniors to interact socially and prevent isolation, and it is so popular that there is a waiting list to get into it. 89 year old Fumiye Mukai gets up before dawn to catch a bus from Gilroy to San Jose (it’s a long trip) in order to attend the class. “I look forward to it because I can sit with all these people,” says Mukai. The wishbook article describes how to donate.
