CCnew

Who: Camille's Closet, a program of the Greensboro Youth Council, is dedicated to collecting new and almost new 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.

What: We provide young ladies with a "shopping" experience and volunteers to help them find their dream dress in a safe and caring environment. 

Thank you to all our volunteers and the Camille's Closet Chair for another successful year!
