The Princess Project Society and Willowbrook Shopping Centre are hoping people arrive at the mall Sept. 20 and 21 with piles of formal wear.
Instead of taking items home with them from the mall, visitors are asked to bring items that disadvantaged young people can use for graduations.
Drop off a cash donation or a gently used grad outfit or accessories at Willowbrook Shopping Centreâ€™s Centre Court by The Body Shop from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 20 or 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 21.
Willowbrook has come up with a gift and personal style consultation with shopping centre stylist Giovanni Amenta for those who donate (while supplies last).
Items most in need are ladiesâ€™ fancy jewelry, purses, shawls, dressy shoes, and new or gently used graduation dresses and gowns, as well as menâ€™s suits or tuxedos and dress shoes.
The items are provided to young people who couldnâ€™t otherwise afford the fancy gear for one of the biggest milestones of a personâ€™s life.
