School clothes for 10 homeless girls.

The Dream Big Girls' Club is a club for middle-school aged homeless and formerly homeless girls in the Aurora, IL area. These girls have very little - even those that have moved out of the homeless shelter and into housing are still one step away from becoming homeless again. We can't show the faces of the girls in the club but we can tell you that each of them has a heartbreaking story of sleeping on couches, in cars, and in homeless shelters -they have tough lives. Besides the huge stigma of homelessness, middle school is a really tough place to be.  Most of their clothing is from second-hand donations. We would love to present them with an amazing surprise in August with a girls' day at the mall where they can each pick out and purchase a couple of brand new outfits to wear for their new school year! Fall school clothes shopping - something most girls do every year, is an experience that these girls may have never had in their lives. Your help would be so very much appreciated. Help us help these young girls "Dream Big!" THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
