Sewing for Girls in Sudan

The VHS sewing classes have been putting their talents to work for a good cause. Dress a Girl Around the World is a charity that provides sun dresses to little girls around the world, and the students at Valley have added 45 dresses to the cause with plans to make more next semester.

The class does a service project each year and family and consumer science teacher Kelli King saw this idea on Pinterest. While working out the details of getting the dresses shipped, she discovered that St. John’s Episcopal Church in West Des Moines was also making dresses for the project.
