Our 2020 Formalwear Community Sale on 3/28 is Canceled

Written by:

Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to cancel this year’s sale.

Please read our full statement here.

 

It’s no secret that many of us have closets filled to the brim with old dresses and tuxes that we’re not wearing anymore. A great way to get rid of those items and put them to good use is by donating them, so we’re here to help.

Our Hoboken Girl Helps’ fourth annual Prom and Formalwear Dress Drive wants to take your formalwear items {gowns, cocktail dresses, men’s suits} off your hands — all for a good cause. The event will be on March 28th, 2020 at the Multi-Service Center in Hoboken {located at 124 Grand Street} on the 1st floor in the Senior Activities Center. Read on to find out more about this year’s formalwear drive and community sale, and where to drop off your giveaway items.

Jordan and Joelle are true Jersey Girls. Originally hailing from down the shore in Hazlet, NJ, the girls made their "rite of passage" move to Hoboken a few short years after graduating with degrees in Communications from Loyola University. Outside of their 9-5 as senior publishers in NYC, the twins can be found walking their yorkie-poo Chica, working out at the best hot yoga studios, or trying out the best restaurants in town. Like many 20-somethings, Jordan and Joelle are balling on a budget and know how to score the best deals around town!
