ALL NEW – Dress a Dude!

Dress a Dude ministry (based in Santa Cruz, CA) was started because we wanted the BOYS in third world countries to feel the love of Jesus, and to know they are valued and important as well as the girls who receive a dress. We make shorts in all different sizes for the boys. If you don’t sew but would like to help, we need tee shirts so the boys will receive a complete outfit.

DONATIONS NEEDED: If anyone would like to be part of this wonderful ministry you can donate a colorful tee shirt, just drop it off to COBC.

Join us at our monthly meetings as we make shorts and dresses and enjoy fellowship, fun and blessings in serving others.
