What is Fitting For The Future?

Fitting For The Future enables young men and women in high school and college who are in foster care in western Massachusetts to shop for special occasion clothing and accessories free of charge. The students are provided with the opportunity to choose that special outfit for a job interview, a dance, a sports banquet, graduation, or any other memorable occasion.

Each student is assigned a personal shopper to assist in the selection of the perfect outfit, shoes, jewelry, and accessories.  Included in the day is a hair and make-up consultation, on-site alterations, and a professional portrait.  Each student leaves the event with a swag bag full of goodies.  Our team of over 80 community volunteers ensures that each student receives personal attention and guidance.

Words cannot truly describe what a magical day this and we've got so much more to share with you. Click here to see more media coverage and photos from Fitting For The Future.
