PROM AND TEENS


Being a single parent is especially hard at prom time. When my daughter graduated , there was a dress , transportation issues ( we didn't have a car) , flowers , restaurant  bill , and more. Guess what ? No money . A very special person payed for some of this . The dress we got was from a church 'prom program'. They had a special closet with dresses , and we picked one for free !   Following is a link to more programs like the one that helped us. Thank you for yet another GREAT link Elaine from TSA ! ! ! ( PS They have tuxedos too.)

REDUX PROM ATTIRE

 

 

IN GENERAL :

Try Craigslist , a great source for all kinds of needs , wants , dreams and desires . Hint: find a listing in your area , then click on "free" listed under "For Sale"

http://www.craigslist.org/about/sites.html

 

Also try    http://www.freecycle.org/ , an organization that I am personally familiar with . Freecycle people share more than clothes . Yes they do share clothing , but in my group , also formula , baby food , food in general , furniture, books , dishes , cameras , computer accessories , and so so much more ! Check it out !

 

This is a wonderful family that provides clothing items for young people in Michigan. If you are blessed to live near them , you will want to contact them . More information :

 

We are a Christian based locally family owned clothing stores that is proud to be a part of the Michiana community. We are located in Sturgis Michigan in the kroger Plaza. We would love to be part of the aid community as well. We offer discount clothing geared towards the youth. We offer a program that pays you cash or store credit for your quality used clothing. This is a great way to trade in your clothing for new ones or get cash for other needs you may have! We also pride ourselves in helping our community by donations and whatever we can do to help someone in need. Please feel free to contact us @ imagewearhome@yahoo.com.

I just recently started a foundation for high school seniors in Illinois.  The Ganier Foundation Designs Prom gowns for disadvantaged teens that have made significant progress despite their financial challenges and have exhibited leadership skills in their community or high school.  We work directly with the highschools to coordinate programs.  We are currently seeking donations to be able to help more girls. Our website is www.ganierdesigns.com/ganier foundation.
