Formal dress donations: Fairfax County Public Schools "Princess for a Night" program

I saw a posting in my community newsletter about Fairfax County Public Schools sponsoring its eighth annual Princess for a Night project. I love the concept of donating formal dresses to a place where they'll be used!

It's hard to find any info on the FCPS website, so I'll quote the Burke Connection for April 22-28, 2010.

This project "enables high school-age girls to attend prom without spending a lot of money. Community members can donate dry-cleaned spring and summer formal dresses, handbags, jewelry, unused makeup (such as sample cosmetics) and shopping bags from department stores through Friday, April 30. Winter dresses, soiled or outdated items, casual dresses or items for mature women will not be accepted. Donations can be brought to the following locations:
  • Annandale High School, 4700 Medford Drive in Annandale, in the main office on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, between 9 am and 3 pm and at the Annandale Neighborhood Center (behind the school) Monday and Wednesday, 9 am to 3:30 pm
  • South County Secondary School, 8501 Silverbrook Road in Lorton, Monday-Friday, between 7 am and 3:15 pm, in the main office
Get out those past formals and bridesmaids gowns for a great cause!

Ebates and Swagbucks are both easy ways to earn rewards while doing what you normally do - web-searching through Google and shopping for bargains online!
