Woman Sews 100 Dresses for Detroit Girls
The Detroit Free Press reports that forty years ago, upwards of 18,000 dresses for needy girls were purchased or hand-sewn by Free Press readers in response to the newspaper's Ruth Alden Dress Drive. Today 100 of 9,000 girls will receive a hand-sewn dress from retired Detroit Public Schools teacher Gertrude Ford. The girls are among 36,000 Detroit-area children who will receive Christmas gifts.
