Great opportunity to clean out your closet and help DC children!

I just received this flyer from Child and Family Services in D.C.  They are trying to help the teens in foster care in D.C. have something to wear to their prom.  

I donated to their Christmas toy drive and was really impressed with how well it was run, and was really moved thinking about children living in a shelter who might not receive a gift if not for the generous donations. 

Please consider looking through your closet for this good cause and forward to others.  Thank you!

Well, allow us to lend you a helping hand! How about donating your gently used formal wear to teens in foster care whom otherwise would not be able to attend Prom.

All you have to do is bring your donations to The Project Prom Boutique and we'll do the rest!
