It's Time to Donate Prom Dresses and Accessories

Published on: February 27, 2013

Prom season and other special spring events are right around the corner, so it’s a great time to help replenish Lone Star College-CyFair’s Prom Closet with dress  and accessory donations.

“With LSC-CyFair’s upcoming 9th Annual Prom Closet, a prom dress give-away for teens in need and those on a budget, we will be serving young women from more than 13 school districts in metro Houston,” said Elise Sheppard, LSC-CyFair Teen Librarian and organizer of the Prom Closet. “Thanks to so many generous donors each year, we are helping hundreds of young women attend their prom, military awards banquet, musical performances and other special occasions with smiles and confidence.”

Dress donations should be in perfect condition – clean (not necessarily dry-cleaned) undamaged, without stains, stylish, new and vintage accepted; however, no velvet, mother-of-the-bride or 1980’s disco scene.) All sizes 0 to 30 are needed. Don’t forget to donate accessories too such as shoes, handbags, jewelry, hair pieces, shawls, new and unused make-up and toiletries.

Donations can be dropped off March 15 through April 18 at 9191 Barker Cypress at the LSC-CyFair Branch Library’s customer service desk during library hours or placed in a plastic bag and left with staff at a convenient Harris County Public Library to put in delivery bins for LSC-CyFair: ATTENTION: ELISE
