For so many people, weddings, proms and other special occasions are unforgettable moments to be treasured for a lifetime. Yet the considerable expenses associated with these occasions — the wedding venue, the prom ticket, the dinner, the accessories, the hairdo — make them far out of reach for some young women.
DonationTown.org will connect you to a charity near you that will welcome your wedding or prom dress donation, and help you schedule a fast, free pickup of your items.
Donate a dress so that a young woman who otherwise wouldn’t be able to can attend her high school prom. While every day some young women find themselves in difficult situations with little money or support, others, faced with the growing expenses of a junior and senior year of high school, must budget college applications and a college education, or a way to make it work in awaiting workforce. Special occasions like a wedding and high school prom should be accessible to all young women who wish to enjoy them, and not just for those with enough resources.
