Leftover Formal Wear

It's a good time of the year to donate some of those dresses and suits, tuxes and gowns to your local "Prom Closet" causes...Many local organizations collect lightly used formal wear for underprivileged kids who cannot afford to buy Prom Clothes...just a thought!

Naaaa, I just throw them out.Angry

Why the angry face?

I have donated my daughter's prom dresses to various charities. I think that this is a good idea.

It's fun to be grumpy. Happy

It's a good cause in my area and it dawned on me that since most people don't go to a lot of formal events anymore, cruisers still dress formally!

Many of dresses are much too "old looking" for prom. Crying

Now "mother of the bride/groom", maybe.

Donate all the time, unfortunately by the time I'm ready for a new Tux, no one will want the old one!

Yes. I agree

I donate all my old clothing to a charity to help the homeless with temporary housing, job leads and training. Casual clothing for every day and suits for interviews. I also donate food to the food bank they run (they take fresh fruit so I donate from the fruit trees, I can not eat it all myself) and I collect all the hotel soaps and shampoos that they hand out.

I sell all of the above Angry so I have extra dough for my cruise
