"Outfits for Angels" Donation Event Held Tuesday Night
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Women offered up their old wedding dresses and sewing skills in an outpouring of support for a new program that makes burial gowns for babies.
Sisters Pam Stewart and Danielle Gillett hosted a donation event for "Outfits for Angels" Tuesday night.
They make gowns for babies who die before or during birth at no charge to the hospitals or families.
After an article printed in the Forum a couple weeks ago, they had an overwhelming response from people wanting to donate or sew gowns.
Many have their own stories of loss and want to help other families.
Danielle Gillett/Outfits for Angels: "There's been an overwhelming majority who have said there was no a program like this when they had their loss. The thing that really hit us was thinking about having to go shopping for a dress after you've had this horrible thing happen to you."
The sisters say they hope to organize donation events once a month.
