BH-BL alumni Zoe Rockwell and FACS teacher Danielle Manning have been teaming up for the past several years to work on a project that helps clothe children in Africa, Little Dresses for Africa. Using new or gently used pillowcases, Manning teaches students in her Fashion & Textile classes how to transform a standard pillowcase into an adorable dress and t-shirts into shorts. The students learn more than sewing skills with this project. They also learn about compassion, kindness, and the importance of giving back and helping others. Rockwell brings the dresses with her to Africa where she delivers them to underprivileged villages. Manning is accepting donations of gently used or new pillowcases, spools of thread, and elastic. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
