The Rosedale Library (1701 Gales St NE) is collecting lightly-used prom dresses, tuxes and accessories through April 19th).
Dresses and tuxes in all sizes – teen and adult - are needed. Formal shoes, jewelry, unused makeup, purses, shirts, bowties, cufflinks and hair accessories are also welcome. Clothing should be dry-cleaned and no more than five years old. Businesses interested in donating items or certificates should contact library staff.
Donations can be dropped off during regular Rosedale Library hours (M, W, F, Sat: 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Tues/Thurs: 1 to 9 p.m., Sunday 1 to 5 p.m.). Tax receipts are available.
Teens will be able to ‘shop’ for their formal-wear at the "Prom Come True" event at the Rosedale Recreation Center (next to the Library) on April 26th. They will have a chance to win prizes and will learn easy grooming and makeup tips.
Arrangements can be made to pick up multiple items if a company or organization would like to be a collection site. Please contact the Friends of the Rosedale Library at 571-213-1630 or friendsoftherosedalelibrary [at] gmail.com
