What is ‘Dress A Girl’? It’s a campaign under Hope 4 Women International bringing sundresses to little girls in third world countries via missionaries. In addition to providing quality clothing, the dresses are designed with prominent labels to warn would-be predators looking to capture girls for slave labor and prostitution that someone is looking after them. In two years, volunteers at The Reserve (the senior living community next door to Creekside) has made and sent almost 2,000 dresses to various countries in Africa, to Brazil and also Haiti. Some at Creekside have also volunteered with Dress A Girl.
If you’d like to volunteer in this ministry, get in touch with Sandy or Myrna. More information about Dress A Girl: http://dressagirlaroundtheworld.com/
