Prom Closet – Clearfield County
Prom Closet – Clearfield County
The mission of the program is to assist area high school students obtain prom attire. Purchasing a prom gown or renting a tuxedo can be very expensive, and families who are already living on a limited income often can’t afford these additional costs. That’s where “The Prom Closet” comes in. Beginning in March, rooms at 214 E. Cherry Street, Clearfield, are transformed into a beautiful boutique where girls can come in to find that perfect dress. We collect, clean and distribute gowns to lend a helping hand for girls attending their prom. The Prom Closet requests gowns, jewelry, shoes, purses and any other prom related items from members of the community. New items are also purchased through fundraising events and cash donations. We request a donation be given with each dress to continue the efforts of providing this service to the community.
The Prom Closet also assists young men attending the prom. The Prom Closet has a select few suits, shirts and pants to choose from.
We have great community partners in Chubby’s Cleaners and Action Graphics of Clearfield. They have made this program a great success this year.
