The pandemic might have changed a great deal for many, but prom can still be special for area high school students. YWCA Central Alabama's My Sister's Closet is partnering with Hope with Grace to offer free prom dresses to area girls. The gorgeous assortment of new and gently used gowns and shoes is available to all who need them. Appointments can be scheduled by contacting 205-401-7493. Hope with Grace is at 1913 Avenue F, Ensley, AL 36218.
YWCA Central Alabama’s My Sister’s Closet reopened to the public on March 15, 2021, after one year of closed doors due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Shoppers are welcome to visit the resale boutique at 2324 3rd Avenue North next to YWCA Central Alabama in downtown Birmingham. New store hours are 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Monday-Thursday under strict COVID-safe protocol.
