Ruby Room Serves 400-500 Low-income Teens Per Year
Ruby Room is a formalwear program that allows low-income teens in western Washington to be included in milestone moments during their high school years. These moments include quinceañeras, proms and homecomings. The Bellevue-based boutique services 400-500 eligible teens per year, and members in the community donate its entire inventory, which includes cocktail dresses, formal dresses, shoes, accessories, handbags, suits and tuxedos.
The program’s mission is to empower youth through fashion, but this is not made possible without amazing volunteers and like-minded individuals behind the organization. Every prom and homecoming season, volunteers sign up to be part of the styling team that has the honor of dressing the young women and men. The stylists all share the same goals: to make the community’s teens feel special, confident and ready to dazzle at their event!
Lastly, Ruby Room is excited to announce that it is expanding to Tacoma this spring. Stay informed with the second location, donation days and other events on Facebook @RubyRoomSeattleWashington.
