Prom Dress Collection Drive
1st Annual Prom Dress Collection Drive
Sponsored by: UAW Local 863 Women’s Committee
February 29 thru March 4, 2016
Dresses and Accessories can be dropped off at the Plant Union Committee Office, or at UAW Local 863 Union Hall
We are holding a Prom Dress Collection Drive the week of February 29th thru March 4, 2016 (the first week of March). We are collecting prom dresses, homecoming dresses, bridesmaid dresses, little dress purses, bling-jewelry, dress shoes and wraps which have not been worn more than once. All sizes are needed.
All collected items will be donated to Kenzie’s Closet, which provides complete prom outfits for financially-disadvantaged female students in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region.
In the last 10 years, Kenzie’s Closet has helped over 3,000 young ladies attend their proms. This has been possible with the support of the community through donations and volunteers. Each young lady they help is living at, or below the Federal Poverty Level, and has been identified through their school district. The opportunity to attend prom with their classmates is a gift with a far reaching impact.
So please look through those closets, and reach out to the young women you know who may have these types of dresses and accessories they no longer have need of and consider donating them. Don’t worry about dry cleaning the dresses. The dry-cleaning will be taken care of.
Dresses and accessory items can be dropped off at the Plant Union Committee Office or at UAW Local 863 Union Hall the week of February 29 through March 4, 2016.
