Are there some items of formalwear in your closet that you could share? We collect gently used prom dresses, shoes, accessories and men’s formalwear, for high school students who cannot afford to purchase or rent these items. Please bring your donations to us and be sure to tell us your items are for the Prom Drive. Here is a flyer.
