Ready Dress Go started in 2011 as a project to provide prom dresses to teens whose families were financially challenged. It quickly became evident to the founders that formal events can be a stressful time for both adults and teens in need. Ready Dress Go is honored to alleviate that stress for many in Northeastern Ohio.
100% of the donations provided to Ready Dress Go, by local businesses, organizations and individuals have outfitted over 480 women and have provided an economic solution for many families.
Over $32,000 in merchandise, goods, and services were provided to prom-bound teens in 2014 – entirely free! More than 200 people attended last year’s teen giveaway, including volunteers from local churches, University of Akron, Girl Scouts of America, United States Army, and Miss Ohio International.
