Up-Cycle Your Formal Wear by Donating Dresses for High School Prom

Rochester Outreach and Charity for Kids (ROCKit) is holding their second annual ROCK the Prom – Formal Dress Drive. From February 1 through March 10 ROCKit is collecting donations of gently used prom, bridesmaid and evening gowns and accessories. Many high school girls cannot afford a prom dress or wish to be “green” by recycling a gown for their special evening. ROCKit’s second annual ROCK the Prom 2017 – Dress Give-away Event provides these young women the opportunity to select a free dress for their prom.
