Every Young Lady Deserves to Feel Like Cinderella at Her Prom!
The Cinderella Project provides prom dresses to young women in the St. Louis region who cannot purchase a formal gown. The Project is operated by the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition. You can donate a new or gently-used prom dress to a number of participating locations.
We Need Your Help
• Donate Dresses – Now through February 14 — we accept all dresses, long and short, bridal, formal or informal. Drop off your dress donations at the convenient locations listed below.
• Help with Princess Prep – Many volunteers are needed to assess, organize, and tag all of the gowns and accessories to get ready for the big event.
• Volunteer as a Personal Shopper — every girl will be assigned to a volunteer personal shopper to help her choose the perfect prom dress and accessories.
• Be a Gown Courier – Pick up dress donations from our business partners — a number of businesses around the St. Louis area will be drop off locations for dresses. We will need volunteers to pick up those donations and deliver them to ReFresh.
• Help as a Seamstress – on-the-spot alterations are sometimes needed to make a dress fit properly.
• Organize a Dress Drive – Interested in organizing a dress drive? Contact Shannon Nichols at email@example.com
Can you help? Interested volunteers should contact Shelley Thomas-Benke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
