Prom Dress Donations Needed: Help Make A Night Special
JFCS is collecting gently used prom dresses, tuxedos, suits, shoes, and handbags for a prom dress sale on Saturday, March 12. The event will benefit our ELECT and Child Welfare Programs, and is also open to Philadelphia area high school students with a school ID. The sale has become an annual event, with hairdressers, make up artists and stylists on hand to help shoppers put together the perfect look.
Adrienne Gavern-Tomlinson, JFCS Director of Education and Outreach Services, comments, “Our students and their families really appreciate the generosity and support created by this event. It really affords students from low income families to be able to participate in special events leading up to their graduation from high school.”
All dress sizes, styles, colors and lengths are gratefully accepted, but there is a particular need for size 14 and up. Items will be collected through Tuesday March 1. To donate, please contact Melissa Blackson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 267.256.2053 for drop off locations or to arrange pick up.
