For over 10 years, the Peoria North Rotary Club has hosted The Prom Closet every spring to serve high school boys and girls throughout Arizona. On several weekends in March and April, Rotary volunteers open up The Prom Closet and invite students in to choose formal attire in which to attend their high school prom.
Club members, assisted by Rotarians from several other Rotary Clubs, accept donated clothing throughout the year -- sorting and storing items at Landmark Elementary School in Glendale. Each spring the clubs sets up shop at the school and invites students to try on and select items ranging from formal dresses, shoes and accessories for girls to shirts, slacks, ties and suit coats for boys.
All items are available free of charge and all students are welcome. All items are for students to keep permanently.
Each year The Prom Closet serves 400-500 students who travel to the event from nearly all parts of Arizona.
The event was not held in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Plans for this spring are temporarily on hold and will depend on local, state and CDC restrictions and whether or not area high schools conduct a prom. Visit the Prom Closet website for current status…Show More...
