Salute to Spouses Blog

We're excited to be blogging about the latest topics in military life. We want to keep you informed on topics such as current events, education, career advice, etc. Feel free to post comments or questions to any of our entries.
Have a closet stuffed with old military ball dresses? Donate them!

How many old ball gowns do you have in your closet? Tired of moving them in each PCS? Tired of hoping you’ll fit back into them after your last pregnancy?

Donate them! There are prom gown collections happening across the nation this spring to make sure high school girls who cannot afford a dress can still have the gown of her dreams.

Nationally, David’s Bridal has teamed up with Becca’s Closet, a non-profit that collects prom dresses for teens in need. You can drop off your dress with a local Becca’s Closet chapter or visit the David’s Bridal website to download and print your free shipping label, pack your dress and mail, for free to the closest Becca’s Closet program.

You can find a list of local Becca’s Closet programs at this website:

Many military installations and spouse groups also collect dresses each spring to donate locally. Check with your local spouse club, MWR office or even the second-hand store on-base.

After a career-worth of military balls, let those designer gowns out of the bag and enjoy another night out on the town. And, help an under privileged girl feel like Cinderella for the night.
