You've spent the past few months thinking about prom: what dress you're going to wear, what hairstyle will look best, and of course bringing it all together with shoes and jewelry! Now you went to prom, took countless photos, had a blast, and made memories you'll never forget. After an #epic prom night, you come home to slip off your dress, take off your makeup, and throw your accessories on that one chair. A few weeks past by and you're wondering: what do I do with my prom dress now?
Donate Your Prom Dress
The ultimate way to pass on your great prom experience, is to let someone else have an amazing experience just like you did! Hope Closet allows young women in the metro-Detroit area to attend high school dances feeling as confident and special as you did without financial limitations. Hope Closet hosts a one week "Prom Pop-Up Shop" run entirely on volunteers and donated items and dresses.

First you need to decide what you want to donate; Hope Closet loves everything including your formal dress, formal shoes, accessories (including jewelry, purses, and wraps), and dress bags. After gathering your donation you have two options: mailing it or dropping it off at their donation center.
To mail your donation: package it and send it to the following address:

To drop off your donation: package it and drop it off at this location:
Premier Locations, an agent of Mayflower

Hope Closet's ultimate goal is to offset financial costs to local families and provide role models for young women who later want the same opportunity to pay it forward with their volunteerism. For more information on Hope Closet, their volunteer program, and next pop up shoppe visit hopecloset.org.
