Cinderella’s Closet was adopted by the Junior League of St. Joseph in 2009. The program offers free prom dresses to area high school girls.
The Closet schedules three giveaway dates a year: one in the fall for the military ball, and two in the spring for prom. Along with a formal dress, Cinderella’s Closet provides girls the opportunity to pick out their prom night accessories including jewelry, a purse, and shoes. Junior Leaguers are there every step to ensure the best fit and style, and to make sure high school girls leave with a smile!
Planning and advertising of Cinderella’s Closet includes our annual fashion show at East Hills Mall, fundraising events at local restaurants, and spreading the word about our organization via social media.
The majority of the formal dresses available through Cinderella’s Closet are donated from members of our community. We are always taking donations of formal dresses and shoes of all sizes, jewelry, purses or clutches, or monetary donations so that we may purchase additional items.
Cinderella’s Closet is proud to serve high school girls from all over the area, including Kansas and even Iowa!
In 2017, Cinderella’s Closet made a big move! Once housed in the AFL-CIO, we now have a new space! Our new location is 3131 Frederick Avenue, St. Joseph, Mo. 64506.
