144 tie dye tshirts, holy jeans, eye glasses and other assorted treasures are packed in 16 suitcases ready to roll on Wednesday, February 10. Four teens and five adults (see photo) will travel as representatives of the Brattleboro Area Interfaith youth group to Kaiguchu Kenya. For the past ten years Guilford church and the youth of the village have partnered to support over 140 children orphaned by HIV AIDS and their guardians.

The children of the church worked for the past two Sundays to tie and dye shirts as a sign of friendship. Check out out Guilford Community Church Facebook page for a day by day account!
