Newton. Project Self-Sufficiency is seeking donations of new and gently used formal wear, including prom dresses, bridesmaids’ dresses, gowns for mothers-of-the-bride, evening bags, jewelry, wraps and shawls, as well as shoes in good condition, for display in the agency’s annual Sister-to-Sister Prom Shop. Dresses must be dry cleaned and on a hanger. Gowns and accessories are displayed in a boutique-like setting, and girls are invited to select shoes, wraps, and jewelry to complement their dress. The shop will be open during selected dates in the spring. “Every young woman deserves the chance to have a beautiful dress for that special, once-in-a-lifetime event,” said Deborah Berry-Toon, executive director of Project Self-Sufficiency. Donations will be accepted at Project Self-Sufficiency, 127 Mill Street in Newton, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
