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. 

Donate a new or gently worn formal dress to Camille's Closet for a young lady to make memories in at her prom.

 Dress Drive: February 23 to March 20
