Every Dress Has a Story Campaign Through November 14

 Every Dress Has a Story Campaign Through November 14

The Girls Scout of Michigan Shore to Shore, Goodwill Industries of Greater Grand Rapids, Goodwill Industries of West Michigan & Goodwill of Northern Michigan are teaming up to make this dress drive possible.

This campaign will make a difference for those giving & those receiving. Those giving, it will help clean out closets, which in-turn provides giving back to the community. So, donate your dresses to ANY Goodwill Industries of Greater Grand Rapids, West Michigan or Northern Michigan store through November 14.

Then, get social! Share the “Every Dress Has a Story” initiative with all your social networks. Post your commitment to this campaign with the hashtag #EveryDress & share a picture of the dress that you’re donating plus the story behind it.
