Cleaners help prom more affordable through donations

Chubby's cleaners in Clearfield county is looking for people to donate their gently used evening gowns or prom dresses. The cleaners that sits on North Third street have been taking collecting the dresses all year long, for about ten years. The business will store the dresses until the donation is made to the Prom Closet run by Clearfield Community Action. 

According to Chubby's owner, Michael Toto, about 80 girls receive free dresses through the prom closet, all which they are able to pick out themselves. Toto says it is a great feeling to be able to help out the students who may not be able to afford to go otherwise. 

Once the dresses are selected, Toto says the girls are able to bring the dresses into the cleaners to be cleaned, pressed, and ready to be worn to the special event. 

Chubby's is accepting donations all year long, with a drop off during business hours or find out more information on their website.
