ST. ANDREW PROM CLOSET ACCEPTING DONATIONS Bring dresses, shoes, accessories week of Jan. 24-31!!

 

MAIN COLLECTION WEEK FOR DRESSES, SHOES, AND ACCESSORIES WILL BE JANUARY 24 - 31

 

St. Andrew United Methodist Church invites girls from ANYWHERE in need of a prom dress to FREE prom shopping days at the church, 5801 W. Plano Parkway, 75093, March 1-3 (Tues.-Thurs.) 4 – 8 p.m. and Saturday, March 5, 9 a.m. – noon, in the Smith Worship Center.  The only requirement is that girls must be present to select their dresses/accessories.

 Organizers are asking the community to bring donations of dresses, shoes, and other accessories to St. Andrew UMC, January 24 -31, and drop them off in Room 133.

“This year is the eighth year of the Prom Closet, organized by the St. Andrew United Methodist Women, and it has proven to be a wonderful way to reach out and serve the community,” said Devra Helffrich, an original organizer of the prom closet.  “We are accepting dresses and accessories such as jewelry, handbags, shoes, and wraps. This year, we are excited to add a link on Amazon for anyone that would like to help by purchasing items. These items will be shipped directly to the church.”

The first year, the Prom Closet provided 35 dresses to local high school girls, and last year  840 girls received dresses and accessories, all donated by community members, local groups, corporations, and businesses.  Dresses sized 0 to 28 are available to choose from, many of which have never been worn.

 “The impact the dress makes on the girl and her family is simply immeasurable,” added Helffrich. “We continue to be grateful each year for the media coverage which is critical in getting the word out.  Last year we were excited to have visitors from Durant, Oklahoma, who were so impressed they went back to their church, presented the idea and are hosting a prom closet this year!”

Area school counselors have been provided information on their campuses.  Students must be present to shop for selection of dress and accessories.

For donations as well as shopping days, please park in the east parking lot off of Mira Vista. During shopping days, look for Prom Closet signs.  Donations are accepted in Room 133 on weekdays.
