Prom clothes donations needed and other news!

Donate prom clothes! April 17th deadline 

This is a wonderful initiative and thanks to DECA member Diana Gibbs for sending this along:

The New Circles’ annual Prom Boutique Clothing Drive is now in high gear and they need your fancy clothes! The boutique is the largest in the city serving girls and boys and expects over 500 youth this year.  Working with schools across the city, the program ensures that the financial barriers do not prevent students participating in the big day.    

In This Closet (1765 Danforth) is kindly offering to be a drop-off site for east-enders and will accept your donations until April 17th.   Don’t leave your fancy clothes to languish in your closet. Bring them to In This Closet and put them to work.  Let’s make sure all our graduating youth can celebrate this milestone event in style.    

Looking for:

  • New or gently used suits, shirts, ties/bow-ties, shoes
  • New or gently used formal or cocktail dresses, shoes, evening bags and jewelry

Urgently needed:

  • Prom wear for young men
  • Prom wear for women in sizes 10 – 22
  • New make up and nail polish
  • New toiletries for men and women
