Prom Wear Needed!

The Chester Andover Family Center is collecting Prom Wear for a special public service event to be held on April 4, 2018, prior to local High School proms. Every teen deserves to attend his or her prom dressed in beautiful, affordable prom wear.

At our second  annual Prom Shopping event last April, teens from Chester and surrounding communities converged on the CAFC to shop for the perfect “Prom” outfit.  The shop was filled with the sounds and sights of teens trying on prom wear and finding accessories to complete their outfits. For $20, a complete new or nearly new outfit including dress or suit, shirts, shoes and accessories could be purchased.

Now we need to replenish our prom wear inventory: dresses, tuxedos, dress shirts, ties and dress shoes for girls and guys. Our goal is to be fully stocked with Prom Wear by March 1.  Please call your friends, search your closets and help us provide a unique shopping experience for Chester area teens.

Last year, students from GMUHS in Chester, Springfield HS, Bellows Falls HS, Black River HS in Ludlow and Kurn Hattin found the perfect prom outfit at the Family Center. Help us make our Third Annual Prom Shopping Event bigger and better.

The Thrift Shop is open to receive Prom Wear donations during regular business hours, Thursdays and Fridays from 10-4 and Saturdays, 10-3.

We are located in Chester at 908 VT103S.
