For anyone wondering about the whereabouts of Cinderella's Closet, I've got an update.
The business, which launched several years ago to help teens find prom attire, was in downtown Sacramento. However, the "closet" couldn't maintain the space and closed. To the rescue? Second Hand Rose thrift shop at 1120 Fulton Ave. The store had additional space that was offered up to Cinderella's Closet.
According to Carol Loew, a volunteer store director for Second Hand Rose, the new "formal" area of the store is now called the Glass Slipper Room. And, in keeping with the original philosophy, any young woman can still purchase a gently used or new gown at a great price.
In fact, Second Hand Rose will host a Drive Thru Dress Drive from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot at the Fulton Avenue location. You can drive through and donate gowns, cocktail dresses, jewelry, evening shoes and handbags.
Cinderella's Closet still provides gift certificates to financially and academically qualified high school girls so they can select an outfit at no cost. If you want more info about the program, click here or call Carol at (916) 487-4500.
We're right in the middle of prom season, so clean your closets and donate to Cinderella!
