There are times when people come together and part with things that are dear to them. But they also know those “things” have a greater purpose than being “belonged.” An example of this people-giving-to-strangers was the recent Comerica Prom Dress Drive.
The shout-out was made that five Dallas-area Comerica banking centers would be the “drop zone” for new or gently-used, formal dresses and accessories for the youngsters at Dallas CASA and Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dallas, who will be attending proms in the months ahead.
Thanks to the generosity of North Texans, 1,230 dresses were donated.
So, now what?
Earlier this month, the member of the Comerica North Texas Women’s Forum “helped prepare for Dallas CASA’s private shopping event, hosted by the Children’s Council.”
On Monday the Forum members set up a prom dress boutique for a shopping experience this afternoon for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas.
If you donated to this special occasion, you may be shedding a tear or two for that sweetheart gown that scored compliments way back when. But just think. It’s probably going to do the same for a young lady in the weeks to come.
