Volunteer to Sew

Each Joy Doll is gifted with multiple clothing outfits

Joy Doll Hospital needs the help of volunteers to sew 18″ doll outfits. Though we receive a large number of clothing articles through donations, many of the dolls we receive start with nothing and piecing together multiple outfits per doll runs through inventory quickly. With the help of volunteers, we can keep a steady supply of clothing on hand for all of our gifts!

A tribute to Joy Doll Hospital’s
First Seamstress

Dorothy Sisson
sewed doll dresses by hand almost every morning until she passed away, September 4, 2022 at the age of 105. 

Blind, deaf & in a wheelchair, Miss Dorothy shared her special talents joyfully with Joy Doll Hospital. Her knack for choosing fun & pretty fabrics was delightful. Her creations graced many Joy Dolls donated to children in crisis both in the United States & Ukraine.

We thank you and miss you very much!
