BCPL collecting new, gently used clothes for Prom Closet Gveaway

  • 0

Baltimore County Public Libraries are accepting donations of formal attire for “Prom Closet,” a two-day event on the east side and west side of Baltimore County where teens can take dress clothes home for free.

The goal of this event is to get prom clothes into the hands of high school students who otherwise may not be able to afford to attend their end-of-year dances. Gently used dresses of all sizes, along with suits, dress shirts, ties, shoes and other accessories are being accepted.

Donations can be dropped off at all 19 Baltimore County Public Library branches. Each location has a bin on display with “Prom Closet” signage.

Branches will accept donations through February 21.

Prom Closet will be held on Saturday, April 4 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, April 5 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the North Point and Owings Mills Branches. Teens will be able to try on clothing and leave with one free ensemble.

This is the second year that Baltimore County Public Library will host “Prom Closet.” Last year’s event took place at the Owings Mills Branch, and was such a success that it has now been expanded to two locations for two days (east and west side of Baltimore County). All sizes are welcomed and encouraged.
