Description

Hello Sunday Volunteers!

Thank you so much for joining us to make the dream of Prom come true for young women in need all across New York City. We are SO grateful for your participation!

This year we are on track to distribute gowns to over 1,000 young women .To do that it requires 5,000- 7,000 dresses in our pop-up shop. As you can imagine, that is a lot of sorting, sizing, hanging and coordinating! We also need volunteers to help distribute accessories, personal shop with the girls, help keep the fitting rooms organized, & more.

Here is what you need to know for Sunday: You and your fellow volunteers will hit the ground running welcoming in the first several hundred young women starting at 9:30 AM. We will have volunteers managing the accessories tables, working the dressing rooms, re-hanging gowns, helping girls who need to find things, keeping the racks neat, and more. THIS IS A CRITICAL SHIFT!!!! PLEASE DO NOT MISS IT! We have over 1,000 young ladies coming that day and we would need this event to run as smoothly as possible for them with your support.

Some things to note:

  • Please dress comfortably. Definitely have comfy shoes. We recommend a gym shoe.

  • We will have burritos for lunch around 12:00 pm. There will also be bottled water and light snacks. You are welcome to bring your own food too. Please note however that there is not a refrigerator.

  • Feel Free to invite friends. They must RSVP to this event.

  • We will be updating this invite with the exact address later this month. We do not announce the EXACT location until about a week before the event to help ensure only young women who were invited to attend show up on event day.

  • We are not responsible for any personal belongings so please leave valuables at home or wear a small cross body bag.

  • We are not accepting volunteers from NYC schools who are not part of a pre-approved group.

IMPORTANT: Please RSVP TO THIS INVITE to confirm that we will see you there!

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to sarah.munley@wgirls.org
