What is Operation Glass Slipper looking for?
Operation Glass Slipper collects:
Prom and bridesmaids dresses (dresses do not need to be dry-cleaned)
Wedding gowns (5 years or newer please)
Flower girl dresses and shoes
Strapless padded bras – bras in larger sizes (DD and up) can have straps/longline bras (any size)
Ring bearer pillows
We are especially in need of:
Smaller size (0-4) and plus size (18+) dresses
Shoes in small sizes (4-7) and larger sizes (11-13), and wider shoes in any size
What do you do with my donation?
We examine all donations to determine whether they are suitable for prom. If they are, they will be placed in inventory for the next Princess Event. If they are not, they will be sold for a nominal amount in one of our periodic fundraising dress sales, which are sales we hold to raise funds to cover out-of-pocket expenses and to purchase items that are not donated in sufficient quantities, such as shoes, purses, jewelry, and prom dresses in the very smallest and very largest sizes. We are diligent about not throwing donations away.
I don’t live in the metro area. Can I still donate?
If you live outside the metro, you can mail your donation to us at Operation Glass Slipper, 2048 Timmy St, Mendota Heights MN 55120. Dresses can be shipped in a padded or bubble-wrap envelope more cheaply than in a box. Thank you for thinking of us!
Can I get a donation receipt for my tax records?
We will happily provide a receipt! Email us at email@example.com after you have made your donation and we will email you a donation receipt that you can print and keep in your tax file.
