|Update, May 2021
After 18 wonderful years, Catherine's Closet is closing its doors. Thank you for your hard work, support, dedication and generosity. Only with your help was it possible for thousands of girls and women to receive beautiful gowns and accessories for Proms and special occasions.
Your generous donations and tireless hours of participation from
hundreds of volunteers made our accomplishments possible. Annual media coverage was instrumental in reaching so many appreciative recipients. Our location at 550 Broad Street in Newark provided an elegant space for all to feel like Princesses and Queens.
In addition, many students received scholarships for their community service with our organization.
Remember the words of Catherine Johnson, "One day, people will know my name - not for fame or fortune, but because I helped somebody." Catherine's spirit sustained us all and will continue to move us in new and meaningful directions."
Drop Off Gowns long and short, shoes, purses and jewelry. Sort and Organize the Collection!

hours or more.
