our initiatives

Our signature initiatives are designed to give students access to formal and business wear for their special occasions, at little to no cost.

For the past three years, we’ve hosted the Once Upon A Gown  Annual Prom One Stop Shop at the Seat Pleasant Activity Center. The Right Fit Inc. is happy to announce that we’ve expanded, and are now featuring two main components: Once Upon A Gown and The Suit Suite! If you’re looking for ways to volunteer with us , click the button below to complete the form.

To our attendees, volunteers, supporters, and families:

Our top priority is the safety and health of everyone connected to The Right Fit, Inc. With that in mind, we have made the difficult but necessary decision, to indefinitely postpone our Once Upon a Gown & the Suit Suite event on March 28th. 

We did not make this decision lightly, but are following the lead and guidance from federal, state, local governmental agencies, and health experts, to adhere to the necessary precautions to ensure we are not assisting in any greater threat to the community we love and serve. We consider everyone our family.

While Once Upon a Gown and the Suit Suite event will be postponed, we will remain steadfast in our mission to continue to provide services that support the young adults & families in our communities. In that vein, we are getting creative and will be continually searching for new and innovative ways to offer our services.

First, if you’ve already registered for the event, your registration will be honored and you do not have to register when we open it up again. We will be sure to contact you with more information. Please let us know if you have ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL. Send questions to info@therightfitinc.org.

Second, if your prom is before May 1st and still currently scheduled, please contact us at info@therightfitinc.org to make a private appointment. We will ask that you complete a questionnaire ahead of your visit, so that we can provide a safe, and efficient experience to find an outfit or two that fits your needs.

 Third, please keep an eye on our social media pages, as we will continue to share updates, resources, and information available to the community during this trying time.

 Lastly, if you need additional support or information, our organization is here for you. Let us know and we will do our best to connect you to the resources you need.

 Thank you again for your understanding and we look forward to announcing the date of our event once we are know.

words from
our volunteers

"The best volunteer experience!"

By far the best volunteer experiences I have ever had. The events are very well organized and communication is top notch. It never felt like volunteering either, it was more like fellowshipping while helping to fill the needs of young adults. Because of the event, I definitely created new and stronger bonds with some great people.

"I would definitely volunteer again!"

I truly enjoyed volunteering with the Right Fit Inc. Being a first time volunteer with the event, it was sad to hear that we couldn’t witness the experience of the girls trying on the dresses and seeing which items they chose. Everything else was great and I will definitely volunteer again next year.

"Looking forward to next year!"

I was honored to participate in such a rewarding event. I met some great people and look forward to next year.

"I love seeing the young ladies when they finally find the perfect gown."

You can see it in their face as the exude confidence that they didn’t have in the beginning. It’s also perfect when the moms are thankful for the experience and are also happy with their daughters perfect gown.

"Everyone is friendly!'

It’s organized. Everyone is friendly, and the kids and parent are so appreciative.
