Operation Glass Slipper is a 100% volunteer organization.
We welcome your support in a variety of settings.
Annual Princess Event (mid-March)
Volunteers help in a a variety of positions throughout the weekend. It takes hundreds of volunteers to set up our space, help Princesses through the event, provide alterations, and take down the event. More detailed information can be found here.
We will also post our sign up for the event in late February.
Seasonal Dress Sales & Fundraising Events
At least three or four times a year, OGS holds weekend-long dress sales to sell donated dresses that are not prom-appropriate. Volunteers:
• Help load and unload trucks (MEN WELCOME)
• Help with set-up
• Assist shoppers
• Maintain neatness of dressing/fitting rooms
• Ensure dresses are returned to the proper racks
Pam is often seeking additional help in maintaining the inventory of dresses and accessories at the OGS warehouse in West St. Paul. Volunteers could help during warehouse hours, generally Monday through Friday from 10 am to 2 pm. Tasks include sorting donated items, organizing inventory prior to dress sales and the annual event, and wrapping dress racks in plastic and boxing other items for transportation to and from event locations.
Picking up and dropping off donations
OGS has a number of drop-off locations in and around the Twin Cities. Volunteers will pick up donations and take them to Pam’s house or the OGS warehouse as needed.
Collection Drives for dresses and accessories
Ask your employer, organization, or school to let you organize a dress and accessory drive. Download the collection drive material here. We collect all year long, so the timing of a collection drive is up to you and your sponsoring organization. We’ll arrange for pickup when you’re done.
