Community service is a hallmark of our Rochester flower shop. Every year, we get involved with charities and organizations that are helping others in our local community. This year is no exception. Currently, we are collecting prom dresses for Fairy Godmothers of Rochester. Rene Spallina and Cynthia Jackson started the nonprofit organization after seeing a story on Oprah about another program that provided prom dresses for financially challenged high school girls. As moms, they knew they had to help local teens who were in that same situation. Since starting the organization, they have helped more than 5,000 young ladies. They now assist over 200 high schools and special programs in the Upstate New York region and beyond. We agree that every young lady needs a special dress for prom to make it a magical event that they'll never forget. Fairy Godmothers of Rochester provides each girl with an evening gown, accessories, and a goody bag that includes a $10.00 gift card to PayLess Shoes. Nearly 50% of the dresses are practically brand new. There is a wide range of sizes and styles to fit everyone's tastes. You can help us help them. We are accepting donated dresses at our collection sites at our Rochester flower shops through June 30th. There is still time to bring in your donations. Even if you miss the deadline for this current donation, we have decided to still accept dress donations year round, so we encourage you to drop off dresses at any time. And, for those who have already donated dresses, we truly appreciate your generosity in helping our local students enjoy their special dance. Together, we can make a real difference in our local community, strengthening our bonds and building each other up with positive action.
