Charleston Cinderella Project

Charleston Cinderella Project

The Cinderella Project is a local 501(c)(3) that helps provide underprivileged girls with the opportunity to attend prom by giving away dresses, accessories, and door prizes of gift certificates to local restaurants and salons.

Their mission works to donate beautiful gowns to beautiful girls. Also, the volunteers are dedicated to serving the Charleston area and promoting confidence and self-esteem of financially challenged young women.


How can you donate?

The Project collects donations of quality new and “gently used”  formal dresses, gowns, purses, jewelry, shawls, shoes, and accessories, and provide those items to high school ladies for FREE at the yearly Cinderella Project Boutique.

Drop off cites for donations:

Downtown at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church
