Did you know that Dress Best for Less (DBFL), Piedmont’s own non-profit resale shop, is one of the largest donors to the Piedmont Education Foundation every year? In the 2016-2017 school year alone, they gave $100,000 to PEF.

Since 1982, DBFL, a 501c3 charitable organization, has donated over $1 million to PEF.  Piedmont’s own resale operation that sells and recycles donated goods from local residents, DBFL supports our schools while helping Piedmonters reduce, reuse and recycle.  With proceeds from their resale boutique, DBFL underwrites grants supporting teacher growth and innovation across the District.  Thank you, DBFL!

Cleaning closets? Recycle and reuse with Dress Best for Less! DBFL is always in need of gently used and good condition clothing, books, sporting goods and other small household items that will produce revenues for the schools. (Please no computers, non-working electrical items, or soiled, stained, moldy items!). Donate items at the marking room at 799 Magnolia Avenue, across from Piedmont High School.
