Donate Prom Dresses to
"Melissa's Closet & Crystal's Jewelry Box"
March 4, 2017
In memory of their former employee, Melissa Michalowski, and her friend Crystal Carr, 2 young girls lost in a fatal accident, Whitmore Ace Hardware (multiple locations) is once again collecting new and gently-used prom dresses for their annual "Melissa's Closet & Crystal's Jewelry Box" event.
Making sure all teens that dream of attending their high school prom are not held back from doing so because of monetary constraints or purchase of appropriate prom wear.
