Mission Statement

Becca's Closet was created as a legacy to Rebecca Kirtman and the project she started.

Becca's Closet provides formal attire to high school students who otherwise would not be able to attend their prom/homecoming.

Our mission is to continue her vision and dream of helping others. In Becca's memory, scholarships are awarded to deserving high school students to advance their education.

Description

Student volunteers, supervised by adults, help financially needy high school girls select dresses for homecoming, prom, military ball or other formal high school events. All dresses, shoes and accessories have been donated by manufacturers, retailers and individuals. Gowns are collected throughout the year in order to keep the "Closets" stocked with dresses in current styles.

There are more than 70 Becca's Closet chapters throughout the United States, and they all welcome volunteers with a passion for helping young women participate their high school celebrations. Chapters distribute dress, 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 awards four scholarships annually to deserving high school seniors throughout the country who demonstrate Becca's spirit of generosity.
