Comerica will supply the donated dresses and accessories to Hope Closet, a non-profit organization that provides high school students with the opportunity to attend special events in a dress of their choice, regardless of their financial constraints or limitations.

“Hope Closet provides a special opportunity for teens to experience one of life’s most memorable events by breaking down barriers,” said Patricia McCann, Comerica Bank Michigan vice president, social impact and head of the national employee volunteer program. “We value opportunities to bring people together, and Prom Dress Drives strives to accomplish that. It creates a community bond from start to finish. As we have learned over the past few years, we must continue to lift each other up and deliver on those truly cherished moments.”

Since 2017, Comerica has donated nearly 5,000 dresses to Hope Closet to support the event. This will be the first Prom Dress Drive since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As we emerge from the COVID pandemic, we are thrilled to be taking over our Hope Closet store to help ease the financial stress of prom for the subway Detroit families,” said Whitney Drake, founder and president of Hope Closet. “We are grateful for Comerica Bank’s continued support as we provide young women with the opportunity to attend special high school events in the dress of their choice, regardless of their financial constraints or limitations.”
