Last month I spoke to volunteers with Let's Dress the Girls in Sykesville. The group — started by Patricia Mattoon — followed the lead of June Renner, of Hampstead, whose charity, Chance to Dance Princess Pillowcase Project, is a nonprofit that makes dresses for needy children in developing countries. Mattoon and her group have sent more than 1,000 dresses to needy girls since May, with underwear in the pockets. They go to girls who have few if any clothes. A simple dress is a huge windfall for them. These volunteers give material, time and their hearts, packing dresses into suitcases to be delivered by missionaries — making a difference.
