Mission Statement

The mission of the Enchanted Closet is to physically, mentally, and emotionally outfit Metro Atlanta high school girls from low-income families through programs that prepare them for social and professional milestones.

Description

In January 2003, Enchanted Closet www.enchantedcloset.org was formed as a community service project to outfit disadvantaged girls for their prom. The working philosophy was that no high school girl should miss this rite of passage because she could not afford a dress. It was a simple principle that resonated in the Atlanta community and sparked an outpouring of support. Enchanted Closet received donations of hundreds of formal dresses and other social and professional clothing during a three-month collection drive. To date, Enchanted Closet has given away over 5000 prom dresses and dresses for other special occasions such as homecoming and ROTC Balls. Volunteer at the Enchanted Closet Prom Dress Giveaway where teenage girls "shop" for a dress and accessories!!!

Available volunteer positions include:
(minimum age 18)

Personal Shoppers
Accessories Coordinators
Registration & Check-out Coordinators
Make-up and Beauty Consultants

The 2014 Prom Dress Giveaway (our 10th Annual) will be held on:

March 15 at the New Vision Christian Church

March 29 at Georgia State University's Rialto Center for the Arts in downtown Atlanta
