Acts 4 Ministry & The Ungroup Society Seeking Accessory Donations For Prom Dress Give-Away Event
On Saturday, April 13, the two organizations will invite young ladies from the Greater Waterbury area to go to Acts 4 Ministry's retail store to select prom dresses, accessories, etc. The organizations are currently seeking accessory donations.
"The Ungroup Society," stated The Ungroup Society's Prom Dress Giveaway Coordinator Rhonda Gatling, "is very excited about this year's event and our decision to deepen our partnership with Acts 4 Ministry. We very much appreciate Acts 4 Ministry's offer to host the event at their facility and feel that this direction is a good fit for us, Acts 4 and most importantly, the young ladies. In deepening our partnership, our belief is that it would provide the young women with the full shopping experience of searching for the perfect prom gown."
Through Friday, April 12, the organizations will welcome donations of accessories and dresses. They also seek either direct professional services of hairdressers and nail technicians or gift cards for the young ladies to receive these services.
"This year," stated Acts 4 Ministry Executive Director Sarah Elizabeth Carabetta, "we are in need of shoes, purses and jewelry and donations for beauty services or gift cards. Year-round we need dress donations that our organizations can re-purpose into specialty items. Because the Ungroup Society's mission resonates with our organization's philosophy to inspire acts of love, our organizations hope to make each young lady feel special and elegant on her special prom night.
"In addition to providing complimentary dresses and accessories for prom night events," Carabetta explained, "Acts 4 Ministry achieves our goal of meeting the daily needs of families and individuals who have displaced from their homes by collecting and distributing, free-of-charge to recipients, clothing, housewares, and furniture. Each year we distribute clothing to nearly 6,000 people, and over 10,000 pieces of furniture and housewares, to people of varying income levels throughout the Greater Waterbury area."
Both groups seek to be of service and to spread a good word both through giving praise and thanks for all while backing it up with actions. All to the Glory of God."
On Saturday, April 13, young ladies seeking dresses and accessories may come to the Acts 4 Ministry retail store boutique at 1713 Thomaston Avenue in Waterbury between 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to select a maximum of two prom dresses and accessories at no cost.
