Last year we hosted a free formal wear event at Toronto High for young people in Lake Macquarie. We appealed to the community for donations of used formal wear in good condition and were overwhelmed with the response! We received hundreds of dresses, suits, shoes, jewellery and accessory items.
This year we hope to host the event again and would like to purchase clothing racks to display the clothes and vacuum bags to store the left over clothes and items to use the following year. We plan to hold this event each year to support our students to have a fantastic formal without financial stress.
This event also promotes sustainability by encouraging items to be repurposed that would otherwise go unused. for a good cause.
This event will be held in partnership with Lake Macquarie, Warner’s Bay and Morisset High schools. There will be donations points set up at each school for community members to drop formal wear in.
The “browse, try and take” event will be held on Saturday the 24th August at Toronto High.
