Langley asked to donate gently used grad gear

The Princess Project Society and Willowbrook Shopping Centre are hoping people arrive at the mall Sept. 20 and 21 with piles of formal wear.

Instead of taking items home with them from the mall, visitors are asked to bring items that disadvantaged young people can use for graduations.

Drop off a cash donation or a gently used grad outfit or accessories at Willowbrook Shopping Centre’s Centre Court by The Body Shop from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 20 or 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 21.

Willowbrook has come up with a gift and personal style consultation with shopping centre stylist Giovanni Amenta for those who donate (while supplies last).

Items most in need are ladies’ fancy jewelry, purses, shawls, dressy shoes, and new or gently used graduation dresses and gowns, as well as men’s suits or tuxedos and dress shoes.

The items are provided to young people who couldn’t otherwise afford the fancy gear for one of the biggest milestones of a person’s life.
