Butterfly Gowns

Kaley Events Leave a Comment

We are excited to continue Butterfly Gowns! We have a local group of volunteer seamstresses who create our very own Butterfly Gowns. Due to an overflow of wedding gowns, formal dresses, and communion dresses, we won’t be accepting anymore dresses at this time. We thank everyone who has donated, and we thank you for your patience as our seamstresses turn these dresses into burial gowns for babies. Each dress or suit will have a butterfly sewn on the inside of the garment. We take presentation boxes to numerous hospitals. Along with the gown, each box also contains a blanket, memory bag, poem, cloth butterfly, and information about our annual Butterfly Walk event.  Butterfly Gowns is currently serving Good Samaritan Hospital, Daviess County Hospital, Jasper Memorial Hospital, Deaconess Hospital, and St. Vincent’s Hospital (formerly St. Mary’s Hospital). We are planning to expand to Richland Memorial Hospital in Olney, IL. If you or anyone you know would like to volunteer to be a seamstress or would like more information on this amazing service, please call 812-255-0277 or message us at https://www.facebook.com/thebutterflywalk.
