Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, 1829 N. Rockton Avenue, Rockford
The Rockford chapter of Becca’s Closet serves as a boutique that collects and distributes formal-wear free of charge to young women from Rockford and surrounding communities who would not otherwise be able to attend proms, homecomings, and other special events, like winter formals. Last year, 550 dresses were given away. So far this year, over 300 dresses have given away. Rockford Area Lutheran Ministries, a partnership organization of area ELCA congregations, operates the chapter in cooperation with the Auburn High School Key Club.
Becca’s Closet regularly accepts donated dresses and accessories, including party shoes. Dresses that are clean and in good repair, plus-size and short gowns are especially appreciated.
