Can you post at the local high schools right before and after prom?  It’ll get a lot of donations for the next year because most people don’t like the dresses they’ll wear once cluttering up their closets!  You could even put an add in the high school newspapers and local papers to advertise.

I’m sure there will still be plenty of High School girls willing to donate. You would probably have the most luck with the seniors. I think I was pretty attatched to my dresses until after I graduated. I had held onto them in case any of my family needed them. You could try to see if an local community colleges will let you post there too. Some of the younger students may have their old dresses cluttering up their closet like I did.

The organizations that hold those events here also advertise on craigslist.

Cinderella Project  is the best known event here.

Other possibilities:

Frock on

Why not hit up some sororities- don’t they have some sort of philanthropic obligations? If you could get a large sorority with lots of chapters you could do really well.

I would also see if you could get a local bridal/formal dress salon on board as a patron- they could donate one or two dresses a year but also pass out information to cutomers on your organisation. In exchange they get free advertisiing on all your flyers etc.
