There’s just something about the extra long Easter long weekend that always ignites the urge to purge and spring clean the shit out of my house. If you, like me, have suddenly been able to turn your home from looking like a landfill to a zen garden, you might also be looking for a place to be able to donate your amazing but not-so-needed-anymore items to a deserving place in Toronto.

More specifically, if you have new or lightly used clothing that’s up for grabs, I’d like to suggest donating to New Circles and the Prom Boutique 2017. Why? Because there’s no doubt that we fashion-obsessed women have a few spare dresses, shoes and accessories that could help provide teens in the need the opportunity to get outfitted for their prom. Ps. If you’ve got a man, a brother or a friend with spare slim suits, shirts and shoes to donate, please have them get involved with the purge too!

To make donating to the New Circles Prom Boutique 2017 that much easier. Here’s a list of 8 drop off locations in Toronto where you can take your clothing and accessories to donate until May 1st, 2017:
