United Way Centraide North East Ontario/ Nord-est del'Ontario is starting a yearly prom/formal wear program called ‘United Closet’. The goal of United Closet is to help offset the cost of prom for the grade 12 students in our community. Now, senior high school students can enjoy their prom without the financial strain.
United Way is accepting donations of clean, gently used or new prom/formal wear such as dresses, suits, ties, shoes, and accessories in our North Bay office. We are also looking for garment racks.
Donations can be dropped off at the North Bay United Way office on 222 McIntyre Street West Unit 105 from
Monday to Thursday between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and
Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
United Closet will be open for students to come in and try on formal wear the following dates at the North Bay office:
Every Wednesday from May 2nd – June 13th 3:30 to 6 p.m.
