Before REAL SIMPLE. REAL LIFE. came along, Rachel Vize was drowning in a sea of old prom dresses.

If you’re looking to do some formal-wear purging of your own―and score some extra karma points in the process―consider unloading your treasures on one of these non-profit organizations. They collect new and like-new formal dresses (think prom, bridesmaid, quinceanera, etc.) and accessories and distribute them, free of charge, to deserving, needy high school students. Here, a state-by-state rundown.
