​We take great pride in the quality of items we’re able to provide to our guests.  We believe that our guests deserve ONLY THE BEST! Our new Donation Guidelines will assure that everything we do will continue to meet the highest standards for our guests.

We accept:

  • New and like-new gowns worn or purchased within the last five (5) years.
  • Formal evening accessories such as costume jewelry, clutches and wraps.
  • Women’s and Men’s formal shoes worn or purchased within the last five (5) years.
  • Tuxedos 
  • New and unpackaged make-up, make-up brushes, eyelashes, nail polish, hair care products, hair styling products and body care products (e.g. body spray, perfume, lotion, etc.)

We do NOT accept:

  • Men’s suits
  • Wedding Gowns
  • Items that are dirty, torn or heavily worn
  • Unpackaged or worn undergarments, make-up, hair care or body products



The wedding gowns we had left all been donated to another non-profit organization, Rest in his Arms Ministries, who is an organization dedicated to providing funerals and burials for abandoned babies.  They create beautiful burial gowns for these little ones out of wedding gowns.

Our men’s business suits have all been donated to PACE (Public Advocates in Community Re-Entry).  The mission of PACE is to provide a variety of services to incarcerated and previously incarcerated individuals and their families to lead productive and responsible lives in their community.
