Thanks to the many hands of church members, friends in the community and strangers who donated time, effort and material, the pillow case dress project has been completed at North Volney Methodist Church.
The final total was 110 dresses in various sizes that will go to help those in need.
The dresses will be donated to Hope4Women International, who will send them to Appalachia in the southern United States. This is an economically depressed area where there is a great need for many things, including help with good clothing.
This was only possible through the combined efforts of so many people. We at North Volney wish to thank all those who donated pillow cases and materials left from their own sewing projects.
Some people were not even sure where North Volney Church was located, but they wanted to help. One special lady who was unable to come to the church but likes to sew made 30 dresses in her home for this project.
We will bless these dresses during a church service and send them on their way to be used in health and happiness by their new owners.
