Recyle A Dress

by Angela On April 18, 2008

I just learned about this and thought in the spirit of Earth Day and clutter clearing I thought I would share this with my Austin readers.  Help make a young girls day by cleaning out your closet and donating a dress.  Read below and have a great day!

  The Specially for Children section of the Dell Children’s Hospital is seeking your help!
 
The First Annual Hungry Bunch Prom will be Saturday, May 10, 6-9pm at the Dell Auditorium at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas.  They are currently seeking donations of fancy dresses to be able to provide a shopping party for the girls to come and pick out a free dress (being on treatment for cancer or a chronic blood illness can be a huge financial stressor for families so they didn’t want to add an additional, unnecessary expense for them).  
 
Dresses are encouraged to be donated by Friday, April 25. Dresses of all sizes are needed, as the program is open to patients 12 years and older.
 
Cynthia Fitchpatrick who is a childlife specialist and is helping to coordinate the event says, “One of the biggest reasons we are sponsoring a prom for these teens is very often these patients do not have the opportunity to go to their school proms because they are sick or may not feel comfortable attending if they are dealing with visible side effects of treatment (one of the biggest ones being hair loss).  Or they don’t live long enough to their junior and senior years when they are able to go to their proms.  It’s the first time we are doing it so we don’t have a very big prom budget so are going to rely on lots of donations.  Any assistance you could provide to help us get more prom dresses to be able to provide more choices to the girls would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for your interest!”
 
If you are interested in donating a dress, bring it to the Austin Film Festival office at 1145 W. 5th Street, Suite 210, Austin, TX 78703 (Monday – Friday, 10am-6pm, 512-478-4795) by Friday, April 25 at noon.  You can also contact Cynthia Fitchpatrick at 512-671-0016  to get directions to bring them to the outpatient Children’s Blood and Cancer Clinic. (Beside the Dell Children’s Medical Center).
