The 2009 Prom Dress Recyclecomments (2) March 2nd, 2009
Why not give your beloved prom gown a second life? The 2009 Prom Dress Recycle is the perfect opportunity to make more room in the back of your closet by donating your dress. The great people at St. Paul Church in Fairfield, Connecticut, have sponsored this event for the past three years. It's an effort to give high school girls who can't afford a new dress for the big dance a chance to pick out the dress of their dreams! This year, Covenant to Care for Children is teaming up with Luther's Garage of Shelton to collect clean, stylish formal dresses on hangers. All dresses should be covered to stay clean. This collection benefits young ladies with financial need who are part of the Covenant to Care for Children program or other nonprofit agencies in the Valley area. It will also benefit young ladies in the Greater Bridgeport area. Dresses will be accepted the entire month of March. Pack up your clean, gently used dress and drop it off at St. Paul's or one of the collections sites—Click here to download a pdf with all the info.
I called the church to see if they would accept donations through the mail, and they said, "That would be great!" If you're not local, and you want to participate in this great cause, pack up your dress and ship it to St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 661 Old Post Road, Fairfield, CT 06824.
