Dress for Success and Career Gear (professional attire for the disadvantaged)
Cinderella Project and Fairy godmothers Inc. (prom dresses for those who cannot afford one)
Your local church charity that may distribute them to the needy within your community

The Big Brother/Big Sister Foundation
Brides Across America (provides free second-hand wedding gowns to military brides)
