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.)
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"
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 !

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.
