Help Families Like Vanessa’s

Posted on April 8, 2015

Diaper Derby babyface

Join us in our race to collect 10,000 diapers for families in need!  

Every donation makes an impact. Vanessa’s story reminds us why: 

Vanessa is excited to meet her newborn daughter when she arrives later this spring, but this time is also filled with uncertainty. At 17, she stills lives at home with her dad and her three siblings. She attends school, works a part time job and saves as much money as she can for when the baby is born. Vanessa’s dad is willing to help in any way he can, but the Veteran can barely scrape by raising his four children on his own. It may seem small compared to the many challenges they face, but the diapers will be a huge help.

Help families like Vanessa’s! Giving a little changes a lot. Make a donation today!

Paying It Forward: Naarah’s Prom Dress

Posted on March 12, 2015


In the Spring of 2014, Naarah wasn’t planning on attending her Senior Prom. Family obligations put a strain on finances, and there wasn’t enough money to purchase a gown and accessories.

At the time, Naarah was in the Twin Oaks Teenage Parenting Program and heard about Project Dress Up. She decided to visit our Prom Shop to see if she could find a beautiful dress to make her dream of attending prom a reality.

There was a large variety of dresses, but Naarah fell in love with a chartreuse gown. Thanks to Project Dress Up Naarah was able to attend the prom! She had a wonderful time and describes it as a “once in a lifetime experience”.

Now a year later, Naarah wants to pay it forward. She had her gorgeous gown dry cleaned and donated it back to this year’s prom dress drive! She’s donating it back because she wants to help someone else who is in the same position she was last year. Naarah explained it best when she said, “I love to help people to the best of my ability and I know that times can be hard and you might not be able to afford to purchase a dress.”

If you have any of the following items in your closet, give them a second chance by donating them to Project Dress Up:
• Formal Dresses in good condition (all sizes, colors & styles)
• Dress Shoes
• Formal Purses
• Clutches
• Shawls
• Jewelry

You can drop off your items Monday through Friday, 9:00am – 5:00pm NOW until March 31st at any of the following locations:
Twin Oaks Yates Center
79 Chestnut Street, Lumberton NJ

Twin Oaks Main Office
770 Woodlane Road, Mt. Holly, NJ

Twin Oaks Berlin Office
128 Cross Keys Road, Berlin, NJ

We’re seeking donations of gently used formal dresses (in an array of  sizes and colors), dress shoes, formal purses, clutches, shawls and jewelry.

We’re accepting donations until 3/31/2014 between 9am‐5pm, Monday through Friday at the following Twin Oaks locations:

79 Chestnut Street, Lumberton, NJ
770 Woodlane Road, Suite 23 Mount Holly, NJ

Last year, we were able to give out nearly 350 dresses so girls could attend their prom in style!

Please help us Make Prom Possible!
