2020 Prom Boutique Gown Collection Hosted at Westy Self Storage

Westy Self Storage continues its support for the 12th consecutive year of the Prom Boutique sponsored by the Long Island Volunteer Center. Westy Self Storage in East Northport is pleased to host this drive as a designated collection site for donations of new and gently-used prom gowns, bridesmaid dresses, special occasion dresses, shoes, handbags and costume jewelry. Donations are accepted through March 1. Westy has also provided free storage space for the items collected and will assist in transporting them to the Prom Boutique.

The Prom Boutique distributes all dresses and accessories free of charge to young women of families across Long Island who cannot easily absorb the expense of a new gown to attend their prom, graduation, sweet sixteen or other significant occasion. Now in its 26th year, the Prom Boutique has helped thousands of deserving young women feel confident at their special event in the gown of their choice. Please help your community by dropping off a donation at Westy Self Storage in East Northport located at 4049 Jericho Turnpike, across from Barnes and Noble.

“In addition to high school graduates who would not otherwise have been able to attend prom, the program has benefited entire families who are given relief from the financial burden and stress associated with planning for a special event such as prom,” said Simone Solz Leo, Executive Director of Long Island Volunteer Center. “We are overwhelmed by the amount of support Westy continues to provide. They have truly been a model community partner over the years ensuring that our storage requirements are met and that logistical needs for drop offs and delivery of thousands of donated dresses are accomplished seamlessly. We could not help make prom dreams come true without Westy.”

“Sharing in the celebration of milestones of young women, such as the prom, brings us great satisfaction,” said Tim Mincin, District Director of Westy Self Storage, East Northport location. “It is our pleasure to be a part of the Prom Boutique.”
