Royal Closet helps high school students attend prom

It’s never fun to spend hundreds on a dress or tux for one big event, only to have it sit in your closet collecting dust. Wouldn’t it be nice to give your outfits a second life and help someone in need at the same time?

That’s where the Royal Closet steps in. They accept donations of dresses, tuxedos, shoes and jewelry and provide them to local high school students who otherwise might not be able to afford them.

The organization asks its customers no questions. If a student comes in with a need, they will do their best to find them that perfect outfit.

Founder Spring Goode said, “I personally work with cancer patients so i realize need looks different for everyone. It’s not always low-income. Sometimes it’s a sudden incident or an illness that will trigger that need.”

For those in need, they have set up two shopping days at their store in Daybreak at 960 East 3rd Avenue. Saturday, April 14 and 21 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. If someone is unable to make those dates, they may contact the Royal Closet and set an appointment up with them.

If you’d like to make an appointment or set up a donation drop off, send a message to the Royal Closet Facebook.

You can also drop off donations at Daybreak, at 960 East 3rd Avenue, East Valley High School and Capri Salon in Spokane Valley, located at 15412 E Sprague Ave.
