Especially needed are gowns in sizes 0-2 and 15+. If you don’t have a dress to donate, you might consider purchasing and donating a dress in one of these sizes. Or, if you prefer, you can donate cash and let us do the shopping for you.

Note: Please refrain from donating casual clothing, worn-out shoes, wedding dresses, used makeu-up, tuxedos and unclean garments. Any item donated that is not appropriate for a high school girl’s prom may be donated or sold to benefit Abby’s Closet. If you have a wedding dress you would like to donate, please go to Brides for a Cause or Compassion Connect. Or, if you have women’s interview appropriate clothing you would like to donate, please contact Dress for Success.
