As in past years, dressbarn is acting as the national collection location for your gently-used nearly new suits. Dress for Success’s mission is to “promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” Their local affiliate is located in the Denholm Building, 484 Main Street, Suite 110, Worcester, MA 01608.

The Friends of the Gale Free Library in Holden, MA (23 Highland Street) is collecting books for this year’s used book sales. Gently-used adult and children’s books can be dropped off at the library during business hours. In addition to fiction books, they will accept books on all types of hobbies (cooking, sports, woodworking, antiques, computers, etc.). They are also looking for DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks.

Also at the library, February 2012 is ‘Food Donation Pardon’ month. Bring a non-perishable food donation to the library during business hours and your outstanding book fines will be paid.

It’s prom dress season! Donate your gently-used prom dress to Anton’s Cleaners for their Belle of the Ball Prom Dress Drive. In 2012, it runs from February 1st to April 1st. Dresses should be in wearable condition and no more than 3-4 years old so they are still in style. Anton’s will take your donation, clean it, and make it available on ’boutique day’ to a girl who otherwise could not afford a dress.
