Chelsea's Closet Helps Young Women go to Dances

Posted: Updated:

Chelsea's Closet is a non profit organization started in honor of Chelsea Faith.

Chelsea lost a lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis in May of 2012.

The organization is a way young women can get dresses for dancers like Homecoming and Prom. The community reaction has been tremendous. Hairstylists, dry cleaners, photographers and other professions in the area are doing everything they can to help.

Chelsea was given the gift of a lung transplant, which added a year onto her life. In that time she lived a lifetime. She got married, got a job and adopter a dog. Chelsea's family says that extra year of life is something that can never be repaid..her mother says Chelsea's Closet it's a way to pay it forward.

Dresses can be donated, as well as other services like photographs and salon services. We have attached a link. The Facebook page is also where girls can inquire about using a dress.

9&10's Alyssa Gambla and photojournalist Erin Malone have more on how this non profit is helping many young women.
