The Chicago-based Glass Slipper Project collects new and gently used formal dresses and provides them free of charge to high school seniors unable to afford their own clothing. At Glass Slipper "boutiques," personal shoppers help students select the perfect style. During the past three years, the organization has helped more than 1,300 students make prom a night to remember.
For those living outside the Chicago area, the site provides listings of similar groups across the country. If you are in Chicago, there are a variety of ways to get involved with the Glass Slipper Project including volunteering and donations. How can I donate? provides information on clothing and financial donations, drop-off sites and collection dates. Donations are tax deductible and can be made online or mailed to this address:
