Donate Dresses, Help a Warrior | News
Donate your dresses. Help a wounded warrior.
How do those two things relate? The 8th annual Demon Dress Drive at Warner Robins High School.
You can donate gently-used evening gowns, bridesmaids dresses or wedding gowns through Friday, February 28th.
Bring them to the front office on South Davis Drive in Warner Robins.
On Saturday March 1st, any gal looking for a gown can come buy them for prom, pageants or dressy occasions.
Student organizer, Chantee Watts, says all the money from the dresses sold will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Watts said, "Here the profits, they don't go back to a store. They go to a charity. And, they are also no more than $50. All of our prices are from $5 to $50, even our brand new ones."
At least 50 of the dresses are brand new, donated by local shops.
They have a total of about 250 dresses now.
In past years, the Demon Dress Drive has raised about $3,000 for several different charities.
This year, they will also accept donations of men's ties and suits.
The dress drive began eight years ago, to help students who struggled to find the money to pay for prom attire. It's now open to everyone who wants to shop.
Again, the sale is Saturday March 1st from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Warner Robins High School.
