Teen girls in need of a prom dress are invited to select a gown from the collection at the “Sister-to-Sister” Prom Shop hosted by Project Self-Sufficiency.  The tenth annual “Sister-to-Sister” Prom Shop will be open April 3, 4, 5, 10 and 11 from 3 to  7 p.m.; April 7, 3 to  5 p.m.; April 8 and 22, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.; and April 18 – 21 9 a.m.  to 4 p.m. 

In addition to new and gently-used dresses of all lengths and sizes, the Prom Shop will feature accessories like shoes, wraps, hand bags, and jewelry so that patrons can create the perfect ensemble.  The “Sister-to-Sister” Prom Shop will offer gowns and accessories to any teen girl in need; no registration is required.  Project Self-Sufficiency is located at 127 Mill Street in Newton. 

 

The prom shop at Project Self-Sufficiency routinely distributes more than 200 dresses to teen girls each year, making it the largest distributor of gently-used formal wear in northwestern New Jersey.  “We are anticipating that the need will continue to be great for many young women in our area,” commented Deborah Berry-Toon, Executive Director of Project Self-Sufficiency.  “Attending the prom is a once in a lifetime event, and we are thankful that our community continues to help these young women to have a memorable evening by donating formal wear to the Sister-to-Sister Prom Shop year after year.”

 

Dresses and other types of formal wear are currently being accepted for display.  The “Sister-to-Sister” Prom Shop is made possible by the Sussex County Family Success Center at Project Self-Sufficiency.  For information about donating dresses to the Sister-to-Sister Prom Shop or to find out more about any of the programs at Project Self-Sufficiency, call 973-940-3500 or 844-807-3500, or visit www.projectselfsufficiency.org.
