Annual ‘Diva Central Dress Drive’ for Prom Season Soon to Begin

Prom dresses/Reston Town Center

Prom season is quickly approaching, and for many, that means stress.

There’s the stress of finding a date and the stress of planning for the big day, among others. But for some, the stress could be in figuring out how to afford one of the night’s most important features — the dress.

To help alleviate that for as many girls as possible, Reston Community Center is once again rolling out its Diva Central Dress Drive.

Donations of dresses that are less than five years old can be made at Reston Community Center’s Hunters Woods or Lake Anne locations between Jan. 30 and Feb. 28. In addition to dresses, donations of prom accessories — including shoes, jewelry, handbags, scarves and shawls — will also be accepted.

Donated items must be in good condition, and it is requested that dresses be dry-cleaned if possible.

Reston Town Center will also accept donations in its building lobbies beginning next week.

For more information about the drive, contact Ali Clements at [email protected] or 703-390-6177.
