“If you count goodness by smiles, there is an abundance in Africa. Children in rural Kenya, South Africa and Zanzibar send blessings to friends at Spencerport United Methodist Church,” Carol Nellis-Ewell exclaimed after returning from a trip where she and her husband Harry delivered dresses, T-shirts and shorts donated by the church.

“Dress a Girl Around the World” (www.dressagirlaroundtheworld.com) is a program that dreams of a world in which every girl has at least one new dress. The goal is to let girls know that they are worthy of love and respect, and that they are loved by God.  A “Dress a Girl” label is placed on the outside front of each dress to show that an organization is involved in their care, with the hope  that may help to protect them.

Are you looking for a way to make a difference in the world? Come help with this service opportunity.  If you don’t know how to sew, there are other tasks to be done.  The next gathering for Dress A Girl will be Saturday, November 18 from 9 a.m. to noon  in the church fellowship hall at 30 Amity Street in Spencerport.

Dress kits are also available to be made at home.

Contact Bev Compertore at 594-4458 if you plan to bring your sewing machine, so that enough tables will be ready, or if you would like more information.
