A project was launched last week that asked for help from the local public in making gowns. The project os a cooperative effort between Iowa Prison Industries, The Fort Dodge Prison, Iowa Central Community College, The City Of Fort Dodge, Webster County, The Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance, The Fort Dodge Community Foundation and United Way. Iowa Central is serving as the pick up point for the gown material and drop off point for completed gowns. Iowa Central VP Jim Kersten provided an updated late last week on the project.
Volunteer sewers can pick up the materials for gown making 9 PM- 12 PM, Monday through Saturday.
