Cornerstone Clothing Bank Etc. Hosted A Free Prom Dress Event on April 16, 2016

The Cornerstone Foundation Clothing Bank Etc. hosted a successful Prom event for girls from surrounding towns. Our mission was to help lessen their financial burden for the girls to attend their high school prom. If not for this help they may not have been able to afford this once in a lifetime event. Everything was provided at no cost!

The volunteers worked for weeks transforming our storage room into a wonderful showroom to display over 200 donated gowns, plus accessories. We also setup 2 separate dressing rooms for the girls to try on their selections. After the girls decided on a gown, the volunteers helped select shoes, an evening bag, jewelry, makeup and nail polish to compliment the beautiful prom gown.

 

We also offered haircuts and skin care sessions by two women outside the Clothing Bank Etc. who donated their time and skills.It was such a thrill for the volunteers from the Clothing Bank Etc., who worked so hard on this event, to see the girls so happy and excited with their choices. The girls and those with them couldn’t thank us enough for helping them out. The girls looked fabulous in their gown of choice.I would like to thank all the volunteers and the generosity of our donors who made this prom event possible.
