Calling ALL Los Angeles businesses! Would you like to be a The Princess Project Los Angeles’ formalwear drop-off location? It’s so simple. First, contact us and let us know you want to be a drop-off location. Second, we will contact you, come into your business and work with you to provide a way to collect and keep the dresses. Third, we will schedule once or twice a month pick-ups so you’re not overwhelmed with donations. And finally, we provide you an accounting of the number of donations you’ve collected for us! Drop-off locations are needed all over the greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas.

donations needed
The Princess Project Los Angeles cannot survive on taffeta, tuxedos, and accessories alone. Our operating budget is around $10,000 per year and will increase as we continue to outreach to meet the sheer number of teens who have need in Los Angeles county. Any donations you can make will help so much. Please go to our donate page for more information or click here to donate via PayPal.
