A dress drive to make formal affordable
In 2009, the Lennoxville and District Women's Centre opened Boutique Encore. This second-hand store runs on donated women's clothing and volunteers, with profits to benefit its programming.
This year, they launched their first prom dress drive with the goal of making those formal events a little more affordable for the girls who attend them. Sarah Rogers stopped by Boutique Encore to talk to volunteer Brenda Hartwell & centre director Terry Moore.
