[ARCHIVED] Come by the donation “castle” at EPD’s front counter to donate to the Princess for a Day event

Foster care can be difficult, and A Family for Every Child is having a "princess party" in May, for girls in Foster care. They need donated dresses, tiaras, boas, fairy wings, wands, shoes, and jewelry to help make it a special day and to make each girl feel like a princess.


Eugene Police is one of the agencies that has arranged for a collection of items ahead of time to support this event and to help empower, encourage and enable girls ages two through 18 who are particularly vulnerable in society. Through April 1 at noon, EPD will be collecting items in a ‘castle’ box in its lobby at 300 Country Club Road.

So… do any members of your family or friends have a bridesmaids dress they wouldn't mind donating... or a cocktail dress worn a few years ago that is just too tight... Or even dresses from pre-skinny days? It’s a great reason to clean out that closet and make room for this year's outfits.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
