our initiativesOur 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.
This year, help us go MOBILE! We want to bring services to students and we need your help. Help us fundraise to buy a truck to transport items to students for more pop up shops & small events. In the “new normal” in COVID climate, we can’t hold events inside venues for now, so we want to encourage students in the most creative way. Through parking lot pop ups, small photo shoots, and more!

"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.
