Enclosed are 283 dresses created by volunteers int he Ames and Iowa State University Community. This is our second shipment to you and it nearly triples our first batch of just over 100. We host weekend workshops where the community can come in and work together to make dresses. The response from the community has been wonderful-from volunteers that come in to work together to those that donated supplies for the project. The Memorial Union is a unique building on campus in that it houses a hotel on the top three floors. The manager continues to donate pillowcases that would otherwise be disposed of, and will continue to, as long as they are needed. Since the cases are white, my student staff, tie-dyed and decorated them, which was another fun aspect of the project. Thanks again for the great work that you do. The Workspace is happy to a small part of it.
