OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) – Some students at Ole Miss are helping less fortunate girls by providing handmade dresses.
As part of a theater class, Donna Buckley has been teaching her students the basic techniques of sewing.
She says she always wanted to participate in a sewing outreach program and she learned of a local program which provides clothing to less-fortunate children around the world and in Mississippi.
That program is called the Little Dresses Ministry at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Oxford. The church has been making dresses for almost five years and has distributed more than 300 pieces of new clothing to young children.
Now, the Ole Miss students are helping with the effort. The class will donate more than 20 dresses to the ministry.
