Donate a dreamy dress

The Foster Care Support Foundation (FCSF) will conduct its annual Prom Clinic for foster teens this Sunday, March 5, 2006. “We need long and short formals and coordinating accessories like evening bags, dressy shoes, and jewelry to go with the dresses,” said J.B. Booth, FCSF Prom Clinic Committee Member. “The dresses should be gently worn, in style, and dry cleaned.”

This Sunday, high school girls in foster care will go to the Foundation’s center in Alpharetta to shop for a prom dress (they’re all for free). “It’s something very exciting for them,” J.B. said. “These are girls who were placed in foster homes because of neglect and/or abuse. Having a pretty dress for that special event in every teen’s life means so much to them. And we can help.”

Deadline for donating dresses and accessories is Friday, March 3. Contact J.B. Booth for details – 404.885.8533 or jb.booth@equifax.com.

The Foster Care Support Foundation is an all-volunteer, non-profit community resource dedicated to providing clothing, toys, and equipment to foster families and foster children in Georgia. The organization operates solely on donations and goodwill from businesses, churches, and communities.

    Good place to drop the old bridesmaid dresses – I got the old “you can definitely wear this one again!” about one that I think I would only wear if I went to a high school prom . . .
