82 dresses were designed and sewn over the summer by the Girl Scouts and a few members of our Mount Vernon community. Younger area girls made beautiful friendship bracelets that coordinate with the bright colors of the dresses the older Scouts made. Yards of colorful fabric and notions were donated by the community as well.
The Haiti Micah Project is responsible for 400 at-risk and vulnerable children who need food, water, clothing, healthcare and school tuition and supplies. The 82 dresses will be delivered to the orphanage in Haiti in September. Submitted by Kathy Lehner.
