Any female-identifying student in Manitoba, who is graduating from a Manitoba High School Diploma program or a Mature Student High School Diploma program, and is facing challenges that prevent them from purchasing a graduation dress and accessories is qualified to attend Gowns for Grads.
To register, please have a teacher or guidance counselor from your school or program send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Gowns for Grads giveaway events are held each year, usually mid-April to mid-May . Students must register for Gowns for Grads through their schools. Appointment times are sent to the teachers or guidance counsellors in the schools and they will notify the graduates of their respective appointments.
Nothing! Gowns for Grads wants you to enjoy and celebrate your amazing achievement. But, we need donations to keep the program running. Please DONATE your dress back to us so another student can benefit in the future.
We accept donations of Gowns year round and ESPECIALLY need dresses in sizes 0-2 and, 16 and up. We would also love to receive your donations of evening shoes and evening bags. Items NOT suitable for our program are skirts, tops, pants, jackets, and casual wear. Please visit our "Drop Off Locations" page on this website to see all of our current drop off locations.
Yes! We require volunteers for our annual giveaway events, which start in mid April. Please email us at email@example.com and use the subject line "Volunteer" to be added to our list of volunteers.
