Want to give your wedding dress a new life for someone in need?
Cork Collection has partnered with Brides for a Cause to collect wedding dresses. The drive is part of the Lancaster wedding and event boutique’s first anniversary.
Donated dresses will go to Brides for a Cause, a nonprofit that collects and resells dresses. Funds are given to women-focused charities. Since 2012, the group has collected more than 9,000 wedding dresses and have given more than $500,000 to charities.
Wedding gowns five years and newer will be accepted. Petite and plus-sized gowns are especially needed.
Dresses can be donated at Cork Collection at Cork Factory Hotel, 480 New Holland Ave, Building 7, Lancaster.
Drop-off hours are: Thursday, Sept. 27 from 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Friday, Sept. 28 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 29 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.
Dresses can also be mailed to Cork Collection year-round.
