DESERT BEST FRIEND’S CLOSET TO OUTFIT
HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS FOR SENIOR PROM
Desert Best Friend’s Closet Seeks Dress Donations
for High School Prom
Deadline to Donate Dresses for Prom Is March 31, 2012
February 23, 2012 – Desert Best Friend’s Closet (DBFC) is proud to announce it will outfit high school senior girls for prom. DBFC intends to honor young women and their commitment to earn a high school diploma by providing them with formalwear and accessories for the traditional high school prom and seeks donations to support this endeavor.
Donations of formal dresses and accessories – shoes, evening bags, tiaras, gloves, wraps and costume jewelry – may be dropped off at convenient locations throughout the desert:
- The Wardrobe in Palm Springs;
- Drapers and Damons in Rancho Mirage;
- Trio in Palm Desert; and,
- Fashion Bug in La Quinta.
All dresses must be dry cleaned and on hangers. There is a high level of need of plus-size dresses. Items cannot have tears, stains, broken zippers or missing buttons as there are no funds for repairs. Donations must be received by March 31 in order to contribute to this event.
Desert Best Friend’s Closet provides a diverse array of clothing to economically disadvantaged and underserved men, women, and at-risk youth of the Coachella Valley.
Desert Best Friend’s Closet assists underprivileged desert residents obtain economic independence and self-sufficiency. We achieve this by offering new, or gently used, clothing for work, prom, or other special events. Desert Best Friend’s Closet relies on the financial contributions, in-kind donations and volunteer efforts of individuals and companies who are committed to helping our clients take charge of their lives and become productive members of the community.
