Who:
Camille's Closet, a program of the Greensboro Youth Council, is dedicated to collecting new and gently used formal dresses, shoes and accessories to provide them free of charge to Guilford County's high school students who would otherwise be unable to afford them.

Theo's Threads, the brother program of Camille's Closet, collects new and gently used formal wear for young men. Items sought include tuxedos, dress shirts, ties, and dress shoes. This is the first year of this program.

What:
We provide young people with a safe and caring "shopping" experience and volunteers to help them find a dress or outfit they will love. 

Mark Your Calendar for the Formal Wear Drive!
GYC will begin collecting formal wear for young women
and men on Monday, February 27.
