Charity - Donate a Prom Dress

February 9, 2015

Hi everyone!
As you know spring is approaching and it is time for prom bashes. Teenagers around the country are looking forward the big event. Girls especially are looking for their perfect dress. However, it is not every girl who is able to afford to buy her dream prom dress. Fortunately, there are some charities around the country that try to help those girls.

This year Style My Bridal which is an online bridal store became a collection partner for Belle of the Ball, a Boston-based charity that collects and distributes dresses to high school juniors and seniors who otherwise could not afford to attend their prom. Anton's Cleaners donates all of the dry cleaning and other partners supply shoes and jewelry. Approved recipients attend a Boutique Day hosted at Simmons College. They select a dress and volunteer seamstresses make alterations if necessary. In 2014 there were 400 girls who attended and selected from among 2,000 dresses.

We have collection spots set up in 3 places in MA and 2 spots in NYC. They're listed here. If you are interested in collecting dresses from family and friends in another area, let us know and we can work something out.
Also, if you know anyone who needs a dress, there are directions on the Belle of the Ball site to apply for one!

  • Should be something a high schooler can wear to the prom (trendy, stylish)
  • Can be any color, any style and any size!
  • Don't need to be dry cleaned - Anton's Cleaners will do that
