We would like to thank the Riverside County Nonprofit Assistance Fund, who by collaborating with the Inland Empire Community Foundation, were able to extend relief to many local nonprofit organizations who were impacted adversely due to Covid-19. The Dresses and Dreams Project was awarded $5,000 to help us with the costs associated with our longstanding nonprofit and its programs for teen girls with hardships and special circumstances. We are so grateful. Without this grant, we would not have had the means to continue to pay our rent to house over 1500 beautiful formal gowns, shoes, and supplies.
While our program is much more than a free formal dress, it really is the gown that entices young ladies to respond to what our program offers and then she is also able to take advantage of our resources we can provide for her to get her life on track and live out her God-given purpose.
The Dresses and Dreams Project has over 1/2 a million dollars worth of beautiful gowns. Our programs are free to those who qualify, including our annual Operation Prom Girl Program. We have given away over 1200 gowns, shoes and much more to teen girls for prom, military women for their balls, and special needs programs like Tim Tebow’s A Night To Shine Event, held in Temecula each year.
Thank you IE Community Foundation and RCNPAF!
