Do you know a high school girl who needs a dress for prom? For the second year, Neighbor to Neighbor has teamed up with the Greenwich High School Former Attire Club to offer gently used prom dresses to area high school girls. The distribution will take place at this historic Tomes Higgins House on the campus of Christ Church Greenwich on:
- Thursday April 2nd from 2:30 – 5:30 pm
- Friday April 3rd from 8:30 am- 12:30 pm
- Saturday April 4th from 8:30 am- 12:30 pm
All dresses are free of charge with a student ID. According to nancy Coughlin, idrector of Neighbor to Neighbor, there are about 140 dresses — both cocktail length for jr prom and floor length for senior prom. Many are brand new donated from stores. Others are gently used.
“Last year, every girl who got a dress looked stunning,” Coughlin said. “They looked amazing and their dresses fit perfectly.”
Alexa Moses and Julia Bunte-Mein of the Former Attire Club sum up the reason for their involvement in this event, saying “we believe every high school girl should be able to enjoy her prom and be able to feel beautiful on this special night.”
Neighbor to Neighbor is a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization providing access to nutritious food, gently used in-season clothing and household items to area residents in need. Organizers are still accepting donations of gently used dresses and are in need of loaned dress racks for the event. For more information, contact Nancy Coughlin, Executive Director of Neighbor to
