Prom Dress Donations 2018

In fairy tales, a fairy godmother is a fairy with magical powers who acts as a mentor or parent to someone. Today a giving a gift to someone in need can often earn the title of a fairy godparent. White Way offers a service to make the dream of going to the ball a bit easier. At White Way we want everyone to feel happy at their prom. We accept prom dress donations to give back to those in need. Do you want to become someone’s fairy godparent this year?

With prom season right around the corner, it is time to begin planning for that special night. A lot of communities look forward to prom. It is a chance for young adults to dress nice and get a chance to experience what hard work can pay for. Often enough, many do not give any thought to the fact that most of the young men who show up are wearing used clothes. Renting a tuxedo is part of the experience for high school boys; the girls, however, generally go shopping and lay out several hundred dollars for a dress they’ll wear once. At White Way Cleaners, we are hoping to make a difference in the lives of others and protect beautiful dresses from ending up in landfills.

Donation Requirements

We would love to accept your gently-used prom dress to donate to high school girls for their prom!  Before we accept your formal gown, we request that you check it for the following:

  • Stains
  • Rips
  • Missing or Broken Zippers

Our goal is to donate like-new prom dresses to Connecticut high school students that are ready to wear.  We are proud to present girls who may not be able to afford a formal gown for prom the opportunity to choose from beautiful dresses.
