We are seeking a few local businesses that would like to partner with the Dresses and Dreams Project and operate as a dress drop off location for gown donations. We have an average of 3-5 gown drop offs per month by individuals in the community. As prom season approaches, we may have more. Here’s how it works: you and your business are placed on our website and social media pages and advertised as one of our drop off locations. Individuals wanting to donate gown(s) swing by and drop off the dress. The plus? There is a good probability they will stick around and shop or get familiar with your business. And, you are forming a partnership with a local non-profit who offers a free program for teens with challenging circumstances! 😇 You just call us when you receive donation(s) and we come and pick up from you. That simple! If you are interested in becoming a drop off location, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
