Becca's Closet prom dress giveaway: March 23rd

Do you have family members or neighbors in financial need who might find it difficult to send their daughter to the prom this spring?

There is help available this Saturday. Read on...

Becca's Closet was created as a legacy to Rebecca Kirtman and the project she created prior to her passing in 2003. Becca's Closet donates formal attire to high school girls with financial need who otherwise would not be able to attend their schools' military balls, homecomings and proms. Their mission is to continue her vision and dream of helping others. You can learn about Becca's Closet here:

Paula Travis and the Women Helping Others organization at Zion Lutheran Church in Gasport opened a chapter of Becca's Closet in 2015 and they have literally hundreds of slightly used or new prom dresses to distribute at NO COST to girls in need in the area.

They will be distributing the dresses from Zion Lutheran Church this Saturday, March 23rd from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

If you have any question, please contact Paula at or 716.4716446.

This is yet another example of the excellent local missions conducted by the good people at Zion.
