Clothed with Strength is seeking volunteer seamstresses, clothes (dresses or skirts), fabric and anything related to making clothes.

The non-profit organization wants to cater to girls’ beauty so they can live their school days with confidence and not fear the future. It is geared to elementary school through high school students.

Founder Laijia Robinson describes the group’s purpose: “Everyone isn’t blessed with the finest possessions; everyone cannot afford to look as great as they like. The toughest parts of your life is your school days. It helps shape you and can give you confidence or even take it away. I know every girl likes to look and feel beautiful.”

For more information, email Robinson at
