Six Flags New England collecting formal dress, suit donations

Hampshire County

AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Six Flags New England is collecting formal dress and suit donations Saturday.

According to Six Flags New England Spokesperson Jennifer McGrath, the park is working with Dress for Success and Suit Up Springfield to host the formal wear drive Saturday. 

McGrath said the new and gently used clothes will be collected at the main gate throughout the day and loaded into a stretch limousine. The goal is to see if more than 500 dresses and suits can fit inside the limo. 

Dresses and suits should be in like-new condition. Donations in all sizes and styles will be accepted. 

The donated dresses and suits will go to men and women in the area who may not otherwise be able to afford them. 

In exchange for their donation, anyone who donates formal wear will be given one ticket into Six Flags New England for Saturday.
