The Lending Closet

The Lending Closet is a project of the St. Helena Unified School District, St. Helena High School, and Greene’s Cleaners to loan formal and semi-formal dresses to high school students in Napa County at no cost. The District seeks to assist girls in obtaining beautiful dresses, and also to instill financially responsible and consumer-savvy decision-making skills when they seek formal attire.

The dresses can be worn for high school dances, and events such as the Distinguished Young Women of Napa Valley competition.  You’ll find formal and semi-formal dresses and accessories for girls attending any high school in Napa County.

There is a $50.00 refundable deposit (check made out to St. Helena Unified School District, or cash) to borrow a garment, which is refunded when the dress is returned within 3 days after day of event/use.

St. Helena Unified School District also accepts donated dresses for the Lending Closet.  Please call for an appointment or to arrange a donation.
