Dress A Girl Around The World

Create dresses for girls in poverty

For a third year, a group of women from our church and their friends will spend the next five Saturday mornings creating dresses for the international Dress A Girl Around the World mission. Each session will run from 9 a.m.-noon, Jan. 27-Feb. 24.

You are invited to join the group and either create and sew together the dresses or help out in a variety of other ways. If you would like to sew, please bring your sewing machine and some fabric for creating the dresses. Some fabric is already at the church from previous sessions.

The Southern Maine group has distributed 11,000 dresses to Senegal, Malawi, Uganda, Haiti, India, Nicaragua, and Guatemala.
