Dress for Success and Prom Dress Clothing Drive

(BAYONNE)The GFWC Peninsula Women’s Club will be conducting a Dress For Success and Prom Dress Clothing Drive on Saturday, March 2, 2013. On that day, club members will be available at the Richard L. Korpi Ice Rink between the hours of 9:00 am and 1:00 pm to accept donations.

 In 2012, the PWC’s successful Prom Dress collection enabled 28 local girls to attend their proms and graduations in style! Please think about donating your gently used, special occasion and bridesmaid dresses to this worthy cause.  In addition to dresses, the PWC will also be accepting shoes, jewelry, handbags and accessories to help the girls feel even more like Cinderella. Garments of all sizes will be accepted. Plus sizes are especially needed.

 For this year’s collection, the Club will also be taking donations for Dress For Success and Suits For Success. These organizations prepare women and men for entry into the workforce by providing them with suitable business attire. Any and all business attire, both men’s and women’s, will be accepted along with shoes and accessories.


Start your Spring cleaning in your closets! There is someone out there that can use your unused clothing more than you can!
