Light up a child’s Easter with ‘Dress an Angel’ program

“In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it, You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade.”

Dressing up has been an Easter tradition for many years, at least according to Irving Berlin, but in Michigan’s tough economy with wages down, many families will not be able to buy that Easter bonnet and dress and nice suit for their children. The Blue Tigers Committee of the Livingston County Democrats is stepping up to lend a hand with the“Dress an Angel” program with the Salvation Army to benefit needy children.

The Blue Tigers are asking that if you have some nice, new or gently used dress clothes hanging in your closet, please consider donating them this week to the "Dress an Angel" program. If your children or grandchildren are older and like to shop for children, please pick up some nice dress clothes to brighten a child’s day.

As well as clean used dressy clothes for children of all ages, children can also use accessories such as purses, socks and shoes as well. You can drop them off at the Livingston County Dems' office by Saturday, March 27, with a note stating they are for "Dress an Angel."

Our office is located at 10321 E. Grand River, Suite 600 of the Fonda Place office park in Brighton. The office will be open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. today through Thursday, March 25. Or call (810) 229-4212 or email to make other arrangements. If you have questions or need to make special arrangements for drop off, please contact Pam Green, coordinator of Blue Tiger Democrats, at
