Prom Goes Green Collecting Special Occasion Dresses

Posted: 3/17/2015

Prom Goes Green, a partnership between Glass Slipper Project and clothing recycler USAgain, is now collecting dresses to giveaway to high school girls in need of a prom dress. Prom Goes Green provides an opportunity for Chicagoland high school juniors and seniors to select a new or gently used prom dress at no cost to wear to their school's prom. The event also provides an opportunity for those looking to donate and recycle their gently used special occasion dresses.
The process is simple for donors:
1. Bag your dress(es) in excellent or gently used condition
2. Label the bag "PROM" with a permanent marker
3. Drop off your labeled bag with dress at Alderman Cullerton's office located at 6622 W. Irving Park Rd.
Drop-offs can also be made at any USAgain bin locations (www.usagain.com).
Donated dresses will be made available at a dress boutique in April where high school juniors and seniors will have the opportunity to select a dress to wear to their prom. The dress boutique is scheduled for two Saturdays, April 18 and April 25. The boutique is located at Price Elementary School, 4351 S. Drexel Blvd., Chicago, IL  60653
