Twenty-eight little girls will have something more to smile about other than a visit from Santa come this holiday. The Pitman High home economics class made brand new Christmas dresses and donated them to the Salvation Army to be distributed to families in need. Every year, the Kiwanis Club of Turlock buys material to give to the Pitman home economics class to sew together dresses that are then donated during Christmas and Easter.
