Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Becca's Closet was created as a legacy to Rebecca Kirtman and the project she started. Becca's Closet provides formal dresses to high school girls who would be unable to attend their proms/homecomings without our help. Our mission is to continue Becca's vision and dream of helping others. In Becca's memory, scholarships are awarded to deserving high school students to advance their education.
Get on our South Florida volunteer email list at http://eepurl.com/Q1LPv& we will let you know whenever we need help!
Our volunteers help high school girls with financial need select free dresses for homecoming, prom, military ball or other formal high school events. It is very rewarding! All dresses, shoes and accessories have been donated by manufacturers, retailers and individuals. We collect donations throughout the year in order to keep our "Closets" stocked with dresses in current styles.
There are many Becca's Closet volunteer-led chapters throughout the United States, and they all welcome volunteers with a passion for helping young women participate their high school celebrations. Chapters distribute dresses, help increase public awareness and hold local dress drives to keep their "Closets" stocked and encourage support from their communities. You do not have to be a member of a chapter to volunteer.
The Becca's Closet foundation also awards scholarships annually to deserving high school seniors throughout the country who demonstrate Becca's spirit of generosity.
