After Betty Vitale’s daughter died in a car accident in 1996, she was devastated. But she wanted something positive to come from the tragedy, so she decided to create Tammi’s Closet, a donation service that provides free prom dresses to those who couldn’t afford one otherwise.
The first year Tammi’s Closet was running, they donated 17 dresses. Last year, they were up to 257! And thanks to donations, Betty now has more than 900 dresses to give away to teens in the New England area in need of a fancy frock for prom.
