Dress Best for Less Presents $35,000 to Piedmont Education Foundation
The Piedmont Education Foundation is pleased to announce another generous donation of $35,000 from Piedmont’s own local resale shop, Dress Best For Less (DBFL). The gift was presented to PEF at the November 15th Board of Director’s meeting.
The check was presented by DBFL liaison, Peggy Chan to PEF Board Chair, Christine Wente von Metzsch and PEF Executive Director, Heather Frank. “We are extremely fortunate that DBFL is committed to our schools,” says Wente von Metzsch. “DBFL understands that their donations matter in the classroom and make a difference to all Piedmont students.” DBFL is the largest donor to PEF with over $1 million donated in the last thirty years.
DBFL Vice President Peggy Chan is proud of her organization’s longstanding history of supporting the Piedmont schools. “Supporting education in our community is a priority for DBFL and I am always impressed by the wide spectrum of topics the PEF Board is involved in and handles on an on-going basis.”
About Dress Best For Less (DBFL)
Formed in 1982 by a group of forward-thinking Piedmont parents who decided to support the schools by collecting unneeded household items and clothing to sell to the community, the group was given an unused room at Havens School and grew quickly to form a successful non-profit, Dress Best for Less, with a storefront on Piedmont Avenue, and a marking room on Magnolia Ave across from PHS. This past year, DBFL moved from Piedmont Avenue to their new store at 3411 Lakeshore Avenue.
DBFL offers affordable quality vintage and gently used clothing and decor. Residents can support DBFL by donating gently used items at the Marking Room at 799 Magnolia Ave and by shopping at the new store at 3411 Lakeshore Avenue
