Round 4 for Dress a Girl mission

Women from our church and friends on Feb. 26 began five Saturdays of creating dresses for the Dress a Girl Around the World mission. Ten women worked on this first Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon. Work will continue every Saturday through Feb. 23, beginning at 9 a.m. each Saturday.

This is the fourth year in which our church has been involved in the international Dress a Girl Around the World mission. Over the first three years, our women created 475 dresses for girls living in poverty, including 193 last January and February.

If you are not able to actively participate, you can still help by providing the group with cotton fabric or extra-wide (1/2 inch) double fold bias tape. The fabric should not be see-through material.
