Dozens Of Homemade Dresses Headed For Dominican Republic

From Potter County Today

dress3Potter County Assessment Office and Tax Claim Bureau employees delivered about 170 colorful dresses to a misson team that is taking them to the Dominican Republic. The monthlong “Dress A Girl” campaign received generous support from county employees and from the public. Employees — on their own time — collected pillowcases and sewed elastic and bias tape onto them. The end product was a broad selection of cute dresses for underprivileged girls in the Dominican Republic.

Former Assessment Office employee Joy Currier (left) and her daughter Mollie are transporting the dresses and distributing them this month. Converting the pillowcases to dresses were employees Deanna Johnston (center), Linda Gambino (right), Gayle Potocek and Karin Karr. They’ve willing to share simple sewing instructions with anyone who would like to make a dress for others in need.
