Cinderella’s Closet
My name is Laurie Brennan and I work with Cinderella's Closet a ministry through Wesley UMC that provides prom dresses for local girls that cannot afford them. This year we are teaming with True North Church in North Augusta to help provide dresses for the Tim Tebow Foundation's "A Night to Shine" a prom night geared for individuals with special needs. We anticipate between 100-125 girls that will need prom dresses for this event.

 We are asking churches to donate any prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride dresses, formals, etc. for this mission. We are in desperate need of larger sizes dresses as well. Any donations could be dropped off at Wesley United Methodist Church at 825 Belair Road in Evans 30809 and would be greatly appreciated.
