LOWC members volunteer at Abby's Closet gown giveaway
Following on from jewelry-making for Abby's Closet, LOWC members Denise, Fran and Minita volunteered at the 11th annual prom dress giveaway held Saturday, March 28th. Abby's Closet collects and donates evening gowns to area teens so that they can enjoy a memorable prom. The LOWC ladies were delighted to meet with Abby herself (pictured below). High school students from all over Oregon and Washington were able to select from 7,777 gowns. Denise worked with the girls to pick out the perfect prom dress and Fran and Minita helped with accessories.
