Book Pocket Clothes
The Book Pocket Clothes program is designed to be given to boys and girls ages 5 through 10 in under-represented economic areas. The clothes have a pocket that holds devotional books of encouragement written by Jana Jackson, that promotes the concepts you are beautiful and loved. There are four basic phases in the project design.
The clothes are made from used pillow cases that will be purchased by donors from community stores that support people of poverty such as Salvation Army, Goodwill or other organizations. This process will support community economic growth in areas where this is most needed for people in poverty.
It is our hope to encourage the idea of giving back through sharing of talents by sewing for children that are in need. Many children in social service programs travel from one foster home to another with only a bag and few clothes that belong to them. Many times, clothes are shared with several children and can’t leave the foster care home when the child leaves. These Book Pocket Clothes will belong to a child and the book will encourage the truth that they are loved by those making their clothes.
These clothes will be easy to wash and dry and will still maintain a beautiful appearance. It is hoped the books will also be made of a durable material that can be washed. The clothes and book will provide a sense of ownership to the child.
We are seeking volunteers from Church organizations, women clubs/organizations and individuals that want to give back to children in need of clothing, as well as Volunteers from homeless shelters, unemployed, circumstances of poverty, and women incarcerated.
It is the intent to service children by providing simple clothes and books. The dresses and shorts will be given to Foster Care girls and boys, Children on Native American reservations, to Missionaries to take with them to the areas they service, Missionaries may request the dresses and shorts and devotional book for their community.
Phase Four: Book Pocket Clothes Fashion Show and celebration
The Fashion show will include dresses and shorts that the children will model for their friends, foster parents, and the public. They will enjoy time together as they celebrate neighborhood unity.
