Giving Back in Style

No girl should have to forgo a Cinderella moment based on a lack of budget.  Many teens across America are already looking forward to prom this spring and Becca’s Closet is their fairy godmother. A non-profit group operating nationally to provide new and lightly used dresses to girls who need them.  Becca’s Closet was started by a generous Florida teen, Rebecca Kirtman, who started collecting and distributing dresses out of her own closet but tragically died in a car accident before she graduated high school.  Since then, her friends, family and volunteers in over 75 active chapters worldwide have kept her dream alive. Three local chapters include Walton High School, Kennesaw Mountain High School and North Cobb High School, who have collectively garnered over 2,000 dresses for Atlanta-area students.  Becca’s Closet distributes dresses throughout the year and resides in a donated space at 2986 Cherokee St. in Kennesaw, GA 30144.  Here, they host by-appointment-only fittings for students attending prom, ROTC Cadet Balls, and other school events, as well as hold volunteer training sessions.  Dresses are distributed free of charge to students currently enrolled in school who express a need. To contact Becca’s Closet to set an appointment, volunteer, donate, obtain more information regarding their mission, events and more, visit www.beccascloset.org.  Here’s to helping girls feel beautiful from the inside out, no matter the event or budget!
