Dress-A-Girl International has been meeting the first Monday of each month at 10 a.m. We are so excited about this program. Last year a group of 24 women from Grays River, Rosburg and Cathlamet made over 300 dresses to send to girls. Pearl Blackburn is the representative for the state of Washington; we are so proud to be a part of this.
Our board member Denise Blanchard went to Ghana, Africa in September 2019 and took 49 of the dresses with her, she was able to distribute these to little girls in the orphanage and churches. Some of the dresses also went to a village in Nigeria. If you would like to donate fabric for this program, please do, we are accepting cotton fabric, please no silks. We are also accepting donations of ribbon, lace and buttons. If you wish to donate, fabric can be dropped off at Johnson Park, a table is outside the sew room.
