Everyone should have the opportunity to attend their own homecoming or prom. Don’t let the cost of formal wear keep you from attending.
Donated dresses get an exciting second life through the Priceless Dresses and Dreams program. Priceless Dresses and Dreams is a free formal wear closet for students in Licking and Knox counties. There are a variety of dresses in different styles, sizes, and colors.
Even if you do not meet the requirements for free formal wear, you can shop either of our locations and purchase a dress for only $15. Men's wear is occasionally available but selection is limited.
Fill out our request for a free dress and someone will respond to you in about 2 business days.
All of our dresses are donated by the community.
We cannot guarantee we will have a dress available in every size, color, or style.
We limit requests to one per person, per season (homecoming and prom).
Must be a student at a school district in Licking or Knox counties.
Must be enrolled in high school (grades 9, 10, 11, or 12).
Must show proof of need.
Examples: Medicaid card, EBT card, or a referral letter (from your school, church, or another agency).
Priceless Dresses and Dreams closets are located at Goodwill Unlimited in Heath and Goodwill Knox in Mt. Vernon.
How do I get my Dress?
After your request is reviewed you will receive an email from our main offices. If you answered all the questions on the request form and have shown proof of need, we will email you a voucher to redeem at your selected location.
Our vouchers are only good for a specific time frame. You must bring a printed copy of your voucher and identification when you choose your dress. We cannot guarantee we will have a dress in your size, but you can keep coming back and checking our selection. Your voucher is only good for one (1) dress. We do not provide vouchers for accessories, shoes, slips, undergarments, etc.
