Prom Dress Drive

dress-illustrationFirst Northern believes all girls, regardless of their means, should be able to attend their high school prom.  We are asking for donations of the following items to be donated at any First Northern branch.
  • Formal dresses (new or lightly worn)
  • Shoes
  • Jewelry
  • Purses
  • Accessories

Donations will go to organizations that supply formal attire for girls who cannot afford the high cost of prom.

Donations accepted until April 12
The Rockford chapter of Becca’s Closet serves as a boutique that collects and distributes formal wear free of charge to young women from Rockford and surrounding communities who would not otherwise be able to attend proms, homecomings, and other special events, like winter formals.  Rockford Area Lutheran Ministries, a partnership organization of area ELCA congregations, operates the chapter.  
Becca’s Closet regularly accepts donated dresses and accessories, including party shoes. Dresses that are clean and in good repair, plus-size and short gowns are especially appreciated.
