From January 20th-Mid February, I’ll be collecting dress and accessory donations to give to an organization based out of San Francisco called the Princess Project. (See facebook event). They collect old prom dresses and accessories and give them to high school students who can’t afford to buy their own.
I’ll be sending the dresses to their branch in Windsor (near Hartford) so that area students can have them.
So, if you’d like to donate, gather up all of your old dresses (they accept formal gowns, cocktail dress, bridesmaids dresses, and anything that’s nice) and accessories (purses,jewelry, wraps, shawls) and I can pick them up once you get back to Wesleyan or you can give them to me at Fauver apts 307.
There are a few guidelines for the dresses that the organization has in order to ensure they’re in good condition:
- They must be in good condition (no rips, stains, etc)
- They must be dry-cleaned
- They should be from 2002 or after (so that they’re not really out of style)
