Collecting prom dresses, shoes, accessories and men’s prom attire

March and April
Grace United Methodist Church, 374 Broadway, Lynn

The clothes closet at Grace United Methodist Church is collecting prom dresses, shoes, accessories and men’s prom attire. Donations can be dropped off at the church during the months of March and April. I will pick a Tuesday in late April or early May for the kids to come and pick out a dress. All sizes are welcome.

The church number is 781 599-4050 and the church office is open Monday-Thursday 9-1.  They can also be dropped off on Friday  and Saturday from 10-12.

All gowns and attire will be free to the community.
