The Boutique loans formal wear, shoes, accessories, tux rentals and possible funds to help with graduation fees, hairstyling and more to youth in need. These youth might otherwise not be able to celebrate accomplishments and attend their Graduation Ceremonies.
The Boutique is run by volunteers, youth, and staff of the Boys and Girls Club of Williams Lake and School District #27. It is a joint effort between these two organizations as well as Communities that Care. We typically support between 50 and 70 grads per year.
Youth help with sewing and mending, maintaining the site, racks and displays, learning to keep files, transporting formal wear to the drycleaners, organizing and cleaning the boutique, and more. This Boutique is for the community; therefore it is accessible to Private schools, youth theatre projects and other youth events. Located @ 70 South 1st Ave (upstairs) in Williams Lake with viewing by appointment.
We are seeking donations of formal wear, accessories, and monetary donations. This project is funded by donations and grants; we are a nonprofit project under the Boys and Girls Club of Williams Lake, Charity # 140049180RR0001. All donations can be dropped off at the Boys & Girls Club # 17 South 4th Ave. Or MAILED to #51 South 4th Ave Williams Lake BC V2G 1J6
