Warms Your Heart - 3rd Edition Clean Out Your Closet

Yeah I know it's not Wednesday, but I just got an email today from Daily Candy Dallas edition about a really nice program & didn't want to wait to share it. Since I'm a Navy brat, this is near and dear to my heart.

The Fort Hood Area Enlisted Spouses Club is gathering gently used party dresses and accessories (no shoes, please) to create a library of formal wear. The wives of enlisted men, officers, foreign force members assigned to the base, and activated National Guardsmen will check out and wear the dresses to military balls held before and after their husbands are deployed.

The service will be free for the ladies, who simply have to pay the cost of dry cleaning before they return their gowns.

So dig in your closet for those special occasion dresses that don't fit, won't fit, and even if they did they don't fit your age anymore & help someone else look like a million bucks. To make a donation, contact Rachel Dean at 254-539-9875 or send and email momof3terrors (at) aol (dot) com.

  1. Greetings from Fort Hood! I am so thrilled to have seen this on your blog! *smile*

    Our first 30 or so ladies came to check out gowns at the gown lending closet during the past week. I can't even describe how amazing it was to see their thankfulness and appreciation at being able to attend the Ball thanks to the generosity of the donors!

    The Enlisted Spouses' Club here at Fort Hood really knocked it out of the park with this program, and I'm so thankful to be a part of that organization!

    Thanks again for placing this on your blog. Merry Christmas!

    Warmest Regards,
    Rachel Dean
