Donate a Dress

Do you have a formal dress, wrap, purse or jewelry that you no longer need? Whether it be from homecoming, prom, sorority formal, wedding, etc. Fairy Goodmothers will take it off your hands!  We provide new and gently used formal dresses and accessories to Central Ohio students who could otherwise not afford to purchase these items for themselves, thus enabling these youths to attend Prom and feel special during this exciting time.

Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: Fairy Goodmothers Storefront (7227 N. High Street, Worthington, OH 43085; West Entrance, Near Amano's Pizza)
