Operation Dream Closet asks girls to donate formal dresses
CORNING — Operation Dream Closet is a new organization but not a new idea. Based on the organizational concepts of the national program Donate My Dress, Rebecca’s Closet or the Princess Project, Operation Dream Closet will provide at little or no cost prom/formal dresses, shoes and jewelry to girls who may not have the financial resources to purchase special occasion clothing.
Jessica Wilson, owner of LONE ARRANGER, a floral and gift shop in Corning, saw a need for this type of program in the area and is in the beginning stages of creating Operation Dream Closet in the upper story of her shop.
“We are here to help girls that don’t have the means to otherwise attend their school prom or special events,” said Wilson. “For us, it’s not just about donating an item, it’s about supporting and building each other up, and we want to encourage girls around southwest Iowa to become involved.”
