Dress a Girl Around the World Featured at Fulton Rotary

FULTON, NY – At a recent Fulton Noon Rotary Club meeting, Rotarian Charrise Kidd  introduced Rev. Tammy Nipper from North Volney Methodist Church.

Rev. Nipper talked about how her church has become involved in “Dress a Girl Around the World” which is a program that makes dresses for girls out of pillowcases.

The pillowcases are then shipped to Arizona, where the program is headquartered, and are then shipped to their final destination.

They had their first sewing day in August and the 15 people attending made a total of 40 dresses.

Rev Nipper pointed out that so far 160,000 dresses have been shipped all over the world with more than 100,000 being sent in 2012.

The need is great.

There you will find information on the program as well as patterns and a link to “Bridges for Boys,” which is much the same as “Dress a Girl” but provides clothing for boys.
