ThuRs Recycle and Reuse

Do you have a prom dress hanging around and are wondering what to do with it?
There may be a Fairy Godmother near you who will match your dress to the perfect Cinderella.

Fairy Godmothers, Inc. was founded in 2002 by Joyce Jesko in Pennsylvania. The concept has grown and there are other Fairy Godmother chapters and sister organizations throughout the U.S. Contact your nearest location to donate prom dresses and accessories.

Do you know a young lady whose family is hurting in this economy? Let them know where and when the dress fair will be held.

For Columbus, Ohio readers, Fairy Godmothers will accept prom dresses year round at the Talbots at Worthington Square Mall. They also are looking for strappy shoes (larger sizes preferably), jewelry, purses and wraps.

Then, the Cinderella’s Boutique will open April 10 and April 17 at the Worthington Mall located at the corner of Rt. 23 (High Street) and Wilson Bridge Roads, just south of I-270. Operation hours follow the operation hours of the mall. For more information, call: (614) 799-9280 or email the Fairy Godmothers at

Only High School Juniors and Seniors are eligible to receive a free prom dress from The Cinderella’s Boutique. The student will fill out a short application and provide proof that they are a current student (valid student ID card, driver’s license, or report card.) Then a personal “Godmother” will help the student find the perfect prom dress.

Donating finery, spreading the word, or volunteering as a personal shopping assistant are all ways that you can be involved and make a very special dream come true.
