Every girl deserves the chance to feel like a princess. That sentiment is especially true when it’s prom season, but not everyone has the opportunity to splurge on the perfect dress. That’s where Cinderella’s Closet comes in.
In partnership with Owensboro Christian Church, Cinderella’s Closet provides formal wear for girls in western Kentucky, as well as everything that goes along with getting dolled up for prom.
“We have 120 girls attending Cinderella’s Closet this year,” said Carrie Kimbrell, who oversees the project.
On March 15 and 16, they’ll need more than 100 volunteers to make the event possible.
“Volunteers will be needed to help in many areas,” Kimbrell said, from being Fairy Godmothers and helping girls select a dress, to helping with shoes, jewelry, hair, make-up and more.
Kimbrell will send out volunteer positions to the organization’s email subscribers, and they’ll be posted Friday on Facebook. All spots will be filled on a first come first served basis.
Cinderella’s Closet is in need of donated dresses, jewelry and shoes, which can be dropped off at Independence Bank’s main location or Owensboro Christian Church Entrance A.
To make donating even easier, they have put together an Amazon wishlist where people can shop for the items they’ve selected, make their purchase and have it sent directly to Cinderella’s Closet — all with just a few clicks.
“We created the Amazon wish list in hopes the community could easily see items that are needed and be able to purchase them, without the hassle of shopping,” Kimbrell said.
