MINETTO – Women of the Minetto area gathered several times this fall to cut out and sew dresses and shorts from pillow cases for distribution to children around the world.
The project, headed by the Nurture and Care Team of the Minetto United Methodist Church, brings together an ecumenical group to work on this important mission project.
A total of 100 dresses and 52 pairs of shorts were sewn and will be sent to Africa.
