Cinderella Project

Sponsored by

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
