Contact local high schools. You could do something where if they donate they get $10 off prom ticket. Most girls go 2-3 years of high school but you don't want to wear the same dress twice. I would try to also make a community meeting or fund raiser. If you can get a local radio station to come out and tell them all about what you have going on and they will alot of times come down, do a live broadcast, tell people about it, a give out free stuff to bring people out. Alot is also about publisity so i would make sure to call everyone you know, email ever news station, radio station, news paper...becuase even just a mention will get people talking.
Also, their is a charity called beccas closet that is pretty muc hthe same as what you are doing if you do not have a local chapter youcould set one up.
